HAMILTON, Ont. -- Orlondo Steinauer is going back to Hamilton.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats hired Steinauer as their new defensive co-ordinator Thursday. Steinauer spent four seasons with the CFL club as a defensive back (1997-2000), helping the Ticats earn their last Grey Cup title in '99.

Steinauer spent the last three seasons as a defensive backs coach with the Grey Cup-champion Toronto Argonauts. In 2011, he served as the club's interim defensive co-ordinator for 12 weeks.

"Orlondo is a bright and talented coach that exudes both confidence and a high level of competence, especially in developing and preparing the secondary," Kent Austin, Hamilton's vice-president of football operations, GM and head coach, said in a statement.

"His positive approach to coaching, his endearing personality and his natural leadership abilities will help create an atmosphere for players to produce and enjoy success."

Steinauer played 13 seasons in the CFL, also spending time with Ottawa (1996) and Toronto (2001-'08). He was named a league all-star five times and earned a second Grey Cup title with the Argos in '04.
