TAMPA, Fla. -- After hearing repeated rumors he might retire after the Super Bowl, Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau told his players in a team meeting he intends to return next season.

LeBeau, the architect of the league's No. 1 defense, said he told the players only because the rumors were persistent on the Internet and he didn't want them to think he would make such a decision without first informing them.

"I would never make any kind of decision without the guys in that room, like my son, knowing first," LeBeau said. "The way they're playing, they're going to have to run me out of here."

LeBeau, 71, has been in the National Football League for 50 years, the last 36 as an assistant coach, head coach and coordinator.

"He said, 'I'm going to get this out of the way. I will be back next year,' " said cornerback Deshea Townsend.

The world is right. No more discussion of the 4-3 defense.

Coach LeBeau could come up with some ridiculous 2-6-3 defense next season, and his players would still willingly battle to the death for him.
