Former Husky Horton one victory from third ring

Tampa, Fla. – He’s won a Super Bowl ring as a player and a coach. And one day he’d like the opportunity to earn a ring or a national championship as a head coach.

But for now, Tacoma native Ray Horton will have to settle for a return trip to the Super Bowl with the Pittsburgh Steelers, his fourth trip to the big stage in a 24-year NFL career – 14 years as a player and 10 years as a coach.

He is a University of Washington product, where he earned all-Pacific-10 Conference honors and played in two Rose Bowls. He was a member of the Dallas Cowboys’ Super Bowl XXVII title team, and he also earned a ring as a coach three years ago with the Steelers.
