LeBeau To Stay With the Steelers; To Ink a One-Year Deal


For those that worried that Dick LeBeau was going to leave the Steelers after the loss in Super Bowl XLV, the news today should put those fretting at ease. LeBeau is going to stay with the Steelers, as the Post-Gazette reports that he will ink a one-year deal sometime in the next few days to return in 2011.

“I’m not coaching anywhere but here,” LeBeau said today after returning from four days off. The Steelers have made no bones about it – they want LeBeau back too, and the 72-year-old seems more than energetic to return and try to one more time lead the Steelers to their 7th NFL title.

LeBeau was the mastermind of a defense that ranked No. 2 overall and No. 1 against the run in the National Football League in 2010.

LeBeau has inked one-year deals with the Steelers year since returning for his second stint as defensive coordinator in 2004. That’s not because the Steelers don’t want to give him a longer deal, it’s on LeBeau, who has been thinking about life after football the past few seasons.

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.

    Enjoy the legend while he’s ours. He made the NFL better, both as a talented player and as a coach. But like all of us, one day he will want to do something else with his life. No one should be begrudge him that. His mother lived into her nineties, so he has plenty of time to write his memoirs or to try his hand in another realm. Whatever he does from here, he’ll make a success of it. But history will always remember him as one of ours.
