Horton became the leading candidate when the Steelers prevented linebackers coach Keith Butler from interviewing for that position. Whisenhunt was looking for someone who had worked with LeBeau to run Arizona's 3-4 defense, which ranked 29th in the National Football League in 2010

Horton went to Arizona only after Butler could not interview for the job

Hard to say who is better but Butler is perceived to be better
