The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that Keith Butler has been named the team’s defensive coordinator.
No ceremony. No press conference. No member of the Rooney family standing in front of television cameras thanking Dick LeBeau — one of the greatest defensive coordinators of all-time — for his dedication and commitment to one of the proudest organizations in the National Football League. Nope.
There’s news of a significant change coming to the Steelers coaching personnel.
Pitt Head Coach Pat Nardzuzzi has announced the hiring of one of his two coordinator positions.
Early Sunday morning, 93.7 The Fan learned new Pitt football head coach Pat Narduzzi plans to heavily consider current Syracuse assistant head coach and defensive line coach Tim Daoust as Pitt’s new defensive coordinator.
Narduzzi says today is the beginning of a dream come true for him. He says this is the job he wanted.
It appears Pat Narduzzi is about to become the next head football coach at the University of Pittsburgh.
In his more than 50 years in the NFL as a player and coach, Dick LeBeau has seen thousands of rookies come into the league.
As much as the Cleveland Browns try to convince everyone that Quarterback Brian Hoyer will be their starter in the teams week one matchup with the Steelers, Defensive Coordinator Dick LeBeau isn’t buying it.
According to reports, former Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley has taken a position under Dana Holgorsen with the West Virginia Mountaineers.
With all signs pointing to Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley returning next year, Safety Ryan Clark weighed in with his opinion on the defensive side of the ball and said Coordinator Dick LeBeau should be brought back as well.
Steelers Rookie Jarvis Jones has gone from backup, to starter, back to backup again so far this season and he joined Starkey, Miller and Mueller to talk about the roller coaster year he has had and the biggest surprises he has run into.
It’s the question that gets raised every year when the Steelers report for training camp, “Will this be the last year for Dick LeBeau?”
Early in the season junior linebacker Shane Gordon lamented the lack of “assignment football” being play by Pitt’s defense. Now the Panthers know what their jobs are, and know they must finish the job against South Florida Saturday night to redefine their 2012 campaign.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — The Steelers’ defense hardly resembled what was statistically the top-ranked unit the league last season in Sunday’s collapse.
