Steelers’ Butler To Stay On As Linebackers Coach
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Steelers linebackers coach met with team officials Monday and, as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports, he will stay on as the team’s linebackers coach in 2012.
Butler was scheduled to meet with the Indianapolis Colts, but after meeting with Mike Tomlin and and Steelers president Art Rooney II, he has decided to stay in Pittsburgh.
Butler is in place to be the Steelers defensive coordinator whenever current defensive coordinator Dick Lebeau decides to retire. Speculation is Butler was given a raise Monday, further enticing him to stay in Pittsburgh.
The Steelers are still searching for a new offensive coordinator. Former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was not offered a contract and recently signed with the Indianapolis Colts.
