Cardinals Shot Down in Request to Talk to LB Coach Keith Butler

It appears that LB coach Keith Butler is staying put.

The Steelers have confirmed they have turned down a request from the Cardinals to interview Butler for their defensive coordinator position. Another Steelers coordinator, secondary coach Ray Horton, will talk today to Arizona about the same position.

The Post-Gazette reports that the Cardinals sought permission from team president Art Rooney II, two days after the Steeler Super Bowl XLV loss, but the request was denied because Butler signed a new contract after the 2009 season with the understanding he would be the Steelers’ defensive coordinator when Dick LeBeau retires, whenever that is.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.
