Rumors going around that DL's contract is up after the big game? Anybody know anything they can add to this? If he's staying or leaving?

Not a shot in hell he goes somewhere else. He either stays in Pittsburgh or retires.

the only way Dick LeBeau leaves the steelers is if he retires...i recall at the super bowl 43 parade he was asked if he was going to retire...he responded that" they will have to run me out of town before i would leave this team"....dick isn't going anywhere, i really don't see him retiring it looks like is really having a great time coaching our defense...why leave...go steelers, were on the brink of history:tt02:

Butler knows that DL's job is his as soon as DL decides to retire.
Why go to AZ when you have no idea how long you going to have a job

Just rumors. How do rumors get started. Get started by the jealous people cause we have something they can never have. One hell of a DC.

"I promise you, if I'm coaching, it will be the Pittsburgh Steelers," LeBeau told the NFL Network Wednesday.

There is absolutely 0% chance of that happening.

Dick LeBeau denied Wednesday that he will leave the Pittsburgh Steelers after the season, telling NFL Network, "With this defense, with this group of men, they'll have to run me out of here."

ESPN reported over the weekend that LeBeau's contract expires after the season and he would strongly consider joining the Arizona Cardinals, who have many former Steelers assistants, led by head coach Ken Whisenhunt, on staff. The team also needs a defensive coordinator after firing Bill Davis earlier this month.

LeBeau didn't specifically mention the Cardinals scenario Wednesday, but he said, "I'm not thinking about leaving tomorrow, I'll put it that way."

"I promise you, if I'm coaching, it will be the Pittsburgh Steelers," LeBeau said as the team prepared for the Feb. 6 Super Bowl against the Green Bay Packers.

LeBeau, 73, has been the Steelers' defensive coordinator since 2004, building one of the NFL's most-feared units. LeBeau is widely respected by Steelers players, who took a day off training camp to attend the coach's Hall of Fame induction last summer.

LeBeau had 62 interceptions, tied for eighth in NFL history, in 14 seasons as a Detroit Lions defensive back (1959-72). He entered the NFL coaching ranks with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1973 and also was an assistant for the Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills. He has served two stints with the Steelers, as secondary coach (1992-94), then defensive coordinator (1995-96) the first time.

LeBeau was the Bengals' head coach from 2000 to 2002, going 12-33 before he was fired and eventually replaced by Marvin Lewis.
