Darryl Drake, who has been an assistant coach in the NFL for 14 years, has accepted Tomlin’s offer to replace the retired Richard Mann to coach the Steelers wide receivers, the Post-Gazette has learned. Drake was the Arizona Cardinals’ wide receivers coach the past five seasons.

For once WE are the benefactor of 'stealing' from the Cardinals, and NOT the other way around!  Sucks that Mann retired though.  He was OBVIOUSLY, very good at his job, and probably the best in the league.

Drake seems to be a good attempt at a replacement though, with the success the Cardinals have had as of late with their WRs like John Brown, Michael Floyd was pretty good (not great, but decent), and of course, the resurgence of Fitz.  Don't know how much that had to do with him, but Fitz looked about done in 2013/2014, and since that is about when Drake took over, I'm hoping there is some correlation there.
