Defensive back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Deshea Townsend was born September 8, 1975. He played college football for the Alabama Crimson Tide and was selected by the Steelers in the fourth round, 117th overall in the 1998 NFL Draft.

A ten year veteran of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Townsend grew from a special teams player and nickel back and initially known in Pittsburgh as the player to wear Rod Woodson's number 26 after he left the Steelers into a solid starter for the Steelers at cornerback. Townsend is known for his outside speed as a pass rusher. Townsend has recorded 322 tackles, 15.5 quarterback sacks, and 18 interceptions during his ten years as a Steeler. He also had a key sack on Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck during the final minutes of Super Bowl XL, which helped secure the Steelers eventual victory. He was re-signed by the Steelers as an unrestricted free agent in March 2006.

During the 2008 season, Townsend accepted the reduced role from starting cornerback to the nickel package. However, his contributions to the NFL's best defense did not stop. After Townsend returned an interception 25 yards for the game-winning touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys in 2008, ESPN personality Chris Berman gave Townsend the nickname Deshea "Stadium" Townsend, named after Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets.

In February 2011, Townsend was hired as assistant defensive backs coach of the Arizona Cardinals, joining former coach Ray Horton.

In January 2013, Townsend was hired as cornerbacks coach at Mississippi State University.
