The Steelers have hired Porter as a defensive assistant, returning him to the city where he earned three Pro Bowl selections as an outside linebacker as well as a Super Bowl ring.

"We are excited about having Joey back with the Steelers family," coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday in a statement. "Joey spent a number of years with Pittsburgh as a player, and now he's back to assist the coaching staff. We look forward to his efforts and contributions."
Porter was an assistant coach at Colorado State last season, and also completed his degree in sociology while he was there.

Porter officially retired as a Steeler in July 2012 after signing a one-day contract with the team.
