As of Thursday morning, the Pittsburgh Steelers have moved on from multiple coaches, which includes offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner. On the other side of the ball, defensive coordinator Keith Butler is negotiating a new deal with the team:

It will be a year-to-year deal, and nothing is set in stone, but the it seems Butler will be in Pittsburgh for at least another year. Butler coached a defense this year that led the NFL in sacks for the fourth straight season as well as being tied for first in interceptions. They were also second in total turnovers, seventh in yards allowed, and second in points allowed. Despite this awesome performance on the season, there was some skepticism about the team retaining Butler after yet another porous effort from the defense in their first postseason appearance since 2017. It seems the Steelers are comfortable keeping Butler on to run the defense. We will update on the contract as more information unfolds.

    I Think that is up to Tomlin. With Butler, Tomlin gets to meddle in the Defense. With a new coordinator, Tomlin’s meddling may not be appreciated
    such as with the previous coordinator DL. Love what he did on offence.
