Pittsburgh Steelers great Hines Ward is joining Arizona State’s staff as wide receivers coach, ESPN reported Saturday.

Ward, 48, caught 1,000 passes, made four Pro Bowls and won two Super Bowls with the Steelers from 1998-2011.

He began his coaching career as an offensive intern with the Steelers in 2017 before serving as an offensive assistant with the New York Jets (2019-20), wide receivers coach at Florida Atlantic (2021) and head coach of the then-XFL’s San Antonio Brahmas in 2023.

The Sun Devils finished 3-9 in their first season with head coach Kenny Dillingham in 2023. The program moves from the Pac-12 to the Big 12 this season.

Ward played in 217 games with Pittsburgh and is the franchise’s all-time leader in catches, receiving yards (12,083) and touchdown receptions (85). He was the MVP of Super Bowl XL and earned a second ring in Super Bowl XLIII.

The Steelers selected Ward in the third round of the 1998 NFL Draft out of Georgia.
