Steelers’ Linebacker Coach, Butler, Also Headed To Indy


There must be something good out there in Indy because the Steelers are reported to have lost their linebackers coach, Keith Butler, to the Colts.  The Colts are revamping the team after a dismal season.  Yesterday the nabbed Arians after he was asked (ok asked is a little too nice) to not re-sign with the Steelers.

Not sure what’s going down over there that Butler was willing to leave.  He was working with some of the best linebackers in the league.  Foote and Farrior are in flux this offseason, but Harrison, Timmons and Woodley aren’t going anywhere any time soon.  Could it be that Butler is not happy the way Arians went and decided to leave?  If that is the case, I doubt the commitment to Indy is less symbolic and more about the opportunity to simply become the defensive coordinator.  He will certainly have his hands full – the Colts never have a good defense because they rely mainly on the explosive offense to win games.

We are still waiting to hear who the Steelers will hire as the next OC.  Caldwell has reportedly met with the Steelers already, which this writer feels is a really stupid move if they go for Caldwell…..

    @steelersbuzztap this is far from a done deal. Butler and Steelers will negotiate a new contract…

    This appears to be some pretty shabby journalism, especially considering that we now find out he never even made it to Indy to interview for the position.

    @nine It was news that came out of Indy and ESPN – ‘sources’ were saying that he was a strong candidate. Jump the shark a bit? Sure. Journalism? This blog is far from ‘journalism.’ I retract the article as being premature.
