Even after he retires they will run the 3-4. In a 4-3 Polamalu wouldn't be able to roam and that is one of the keys to our defense. Our personnel is built for the 3-4 and it would be a huge mistake.
Butler is the heir apparent though, he turned down D-Coord. jobs with two teams this year and last year because I think he was told he was going to be put in charge after LeBeau called it quits.
