Linebackers coach Keith Butler has been the Steelers defensive coordinator in waiting for three years now and Dick LeBeau is not going anywhere with Steelers sources saying LeBeau intends to coach as long as Troy Polamalu is playing, who has two years left on his deal.
Does he finally go chase better opportunities?
Unlikely, but last winter Butler had an agreement in place to become the Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator but backed out at the last minute. Bruce Arians was the driving force behind the Colts making Butler their top choice for defensive coordinator and with Arians becoming the Arizona Cardinals head coach today, he’s going to do all he can to lure Butler to Arizona.
It’s going to be a situation to watch.
