Steelers Buzz: No more coaching changes expected

Following the firings of special teams coach Bob Ligashesky, offensive line coach Larry Zierlein, and the retirement of QB coach Ken Anderson, no more coaching changes are expected.
Wide receivers Coach Randy Fichtner, running backs coach Kirby Wilson, linebackers coach Keith Butler and tight ends coach James Daniel have been informed that they will be retained along with assistant special teams coach Amos Jones.
Defensive Coordinator Dick LeBeau will return for at least one more season, while assistant head Coach/Defensive Line coach John Mitchell will return.
Mitchell is the front runner to replace Dick LeBeau as defensive coordinator, if 2010 is LeBeau’s last season.
Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was informed on Wednesday that he would be retained. Arians has one year remaining on his contract.
The one coach in question has been secondary coach Ray Horton but all indications at this point is that Horton will be retained. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met with his defensive staff on Thursday.
