“I’m not coaching anywhere but here,” LeBeau said Tuesday after returning from four days off to start getting ready for the NFL combine that begins Feb. 23 in Indianapolis.
“This is the only place I will coach, so long as they want me,” LeBeau said.
Gerry Dulac broke the news today that Defensive Coordinator Dick Lebeau will return to coach his defense in 2011. He will sign a new 1 yr contract anyday now. This is great news for all Steeler fans knowing we have the genius back in the fold for 1 more season.
Keith Butler is still the top candidate to replace Lebeau when he does finally decide to hang it up, but for now the Hall of Fame, Zone Blitz master will be back in Blitzburgh.
One thing to keep an eye on is how much longer Butler will stick around when his deal does come up. The Steelers would most certainly try to ink him to a new deal if his runs out and Lebeau is still around.
