    If he did that, everyone would complain how he falls in love with the shiny new toy and doesn't respect veteran leadership. There's no winning with some people.

    Butler apparently has relatives in TN and went to college in Memphis (has TN ties). I have read elsewhere conflicting stories that his nephew (who lives in TN and is a Titans fan) has said 1) Butler is staying with Pitt and 2) he wants the Titans DC job really bad.

    Edited: Per Dulac Twitter - Butler was the leading candidate to join his friend and former Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt in Tennessee, but the move was apparently scuttled for undisclosed reasons. (I bet cause Butler really doesn't want to go.)

    Ray Horton accepts Titans’ defensive coordinator job

    Ray Horton AP

    Ray Horton is leaving Cleveland for Tennessee.

    Horton has accepted the Titans’ defensive coordinator job, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. As we noted earlier this week, Horton was believed to be new Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt’s top choice. Horton was also Whisenhunt’s defensive coordinator in Arizona in 2011 and 2012.

    The 53-year-old Horton has long been a well-regarded defensive coordinator, as well as a head-coaching candidate. He interviewed for the Vikings’ head-coaching job this year but lost out to Mike Zimmer.

    Horton has also been a secondary coach in Pittsburgh, Detroit, Cincinnati and Washington. He was an NFL cornerback from 1983 to 1992, with the Bengals and Cowboys.

    Can't blame that. That franchise is a train wreck right now.
