Keith Butler to Stay with Steelers
The Steelers got their guy yesterday when Keith Butler decided to stay with the team. Butler will remain the Linebackers Coach. Butler was named the Defensive Coordinator in waiting a few seasons ago. For him to turn down the Colts DC position means that he must have been given some major guarantee that it would be happening soon. Butler did not even make it to his interview with the Colts so the deal must have been sweet.
I am glad we kept Butler. It would have been such a huge loss if he went somewhere else. To train a guy for that long to run your defense and just let him slip away would have been a bad move. Butler knows Lebeau’s scheme inside and out. He is the only person who could really make it work on this staff. The Steelers could have looked outside but it would not have been the same.
