    Keith Butler now headed to the Colts too... aka Pittsburgh North

    @AdamSchefter: Not only do the Colts plan to add Bruce Arians, but Indianapolis also plans to hire former Steelers LB coach Keith Butler as its DC.

    Pretty soon the colts are going to start picking up our scrubs from Arizona

    Just saw this come through as well. Not good, but you can't blame him. He wants to be a defensive coordinator and Lebeau isn't leaving anytime soon.

    I'm glad coach is staying for a long time

    @jimwexell: LeBeau has no plans of retiring anytime soon. "They'll have to throw me out of here," he said 2 wks ago.

    This is certainly no cause to go jump off a bridge or anything here. Losing Butler does suck because he was the heir apparent to Dick Lebeau, however it's not the end of the world. I can't blame him for leaving, he feels he's ready and wants the chance to take his career to the next level.

    LeBeau might literally be the DC till he dies.

    Not completely a done deal yet but based on recent comments from Butler about wanting to run a defense it just seems like a formality.

    Steelers linebacker coach Keith Butler said today he will interview on Tuesday in Indianapolis to become the Colts' defensive coordinator.


    Butler turned down an offer two years ago to be the Miami Dolphins' defensive coordinator to stay with the Steelers. However, his contract with them expires Feb. 15, and the Steelers gave the Colts permission to talk to him about joining new head coach Chuck Pagano.


    Butler said today he will listen to what the Colts have to say, but that him leaving the Steelers "is not a done deal." If he does become the Colts' defensive coordinator, he would join former Steelers colleague Bruce Arians, who accepted the job to be the Indianapolis offensive coordinator over the weekend.


    Butler, 55, has been the Steelers' linebackers coach since 2003.
