NFL Coach Gives Car to Cafeteria Worker

It's not often that you hear about the good things people do in the NFL, but this one grabbed our attention. Ray Horton, a former Steelers secondary coach, gave away his red 1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 convertible roadster to Steelers' cafeteria workers Maurice "Mo" Matthews, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Apparently Horton stopped by the Steelers complex to say goodbye before heading to Arizona, where he's the Cardinals new defensive coach, and told Matthews he'd give him the car for $20.

"I'm like, 'Stop playing with me Ray; don't play with me,' " Matthews said. "The other [workers] were looking at me, their jaws dropped.

"Ray said, 'Hey, you always liked the car, you're a good dude, I know you'll take care of it. It's yours."

That' a really nice gift. Many people will never have the opportunity of owning a Mercedes. Congrats Mo!
