Default Keith Butler STAYS!

Steelers linebackers coach turns down Miami offer
Friday, January 15, 2010
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Linebackers coach Keith Butler has turned down the Miami Dolphins' offer to become their defensive coordinator and will remain with the Steelers, the Post-Gazette has learned.

Butler, 52, who has been with the Steelers for seven seasons, worked for two years in Cleveland with Dolphins Coach Tony Sparano (1999-2000). He is considered to be the person who will become the Steelers defensive coordinator whenever Dick LeBeau retires.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

I wonder if he's hoping for a better gig down the line? Either way, its great to get to keep him on staff.

That is exactly what I get out of it. Especially because it specifically says he turned down the offer, not just that he wasn't picked. I would think Lebeau will likely retire in the year or two.
