Was there an African-American quarterback by the name of Harris that played 2nd or 3rd string for the Pittsburgh Steelers?

I do not think there ever was. There was a backup by the name of Joe Gilliam in the early 70s who backed up Brandshaw and Hanratty. He did start a few games - I believe he was the first African American QB to start a Monday Night game...I think he also played in Superbowl IX.
