Default Keith Butler to Arizona?

Whis just pulled the trigger on his Defensive Coordinator. Speculation is that the leading candidate is Butler, our LB coach...

Why not? The first fishing hole he always looks in is Pittsburgh.

He even put his pre-game "pep speech " together from notes he took from Cowher's speeches.

If you don't mind my asking, why was this moved? It pertains to the Steelers and their current organization.

that's dline coach Mitchell

I figured the cards would have a steelers coach on the radar after they fired theirs. too bad it's butler, I always thought he'd eventually succeed lebeau. no one can replace him

oh, and as for links....

As far as a possible replacement for Arizona’s defensive coordinator to replace Clancy Pendergast, Ken Whisenhunt could try to land Pittsburgh linebackers coach Keith Butler, whom Whisenhunt wanted to interview in 2007 upon taking the job but was denied permission by the Steelers.

Whisenhunt would like to run more of a traditional 3-4 base defense. Pendergast, a holdover from Dennis Green’s staff, incorporated some 3-4 principles into the 4-3 front. Whisenhunt could decide to go with a more traditional 3-4 look, and Butler knows how to coach it and is obviously familiar with it.
seems all speculation so far....

thanks. i knew it was 1 of the 2. it seemed logical that he would be being groomes as the successor, especially how good his units have been.

but obviously the steelers placed more emphasis of protecting mitchell.

thanks butler. great work. any team would be smart (and lucky) to get you. and the cardinals under whiz have shown thy are willing to create their own luck. enjou your time in the desert.
