Keith Butler would rather coach linebackers for the Steelers than coordinate the defense for the Cardinals.
What is a fan to make of this? Is the end of the Dick LeBeau era eminent? Has Coach Tomlin promised LeBeau’s coordinator position to Butler? Or does Butler simply love coaching the Steelers linebackers so well that he would forgo career advancement?
Those are the only things that make sense. You know the Rooney’s won’t money-whip a coach to keep him around, particularly not a position coach. But perhaps Butler is cut from the same cloth as Dick Hoak, the 35+ years running backs coach of the Steelers.
