Report: Steelers DC Keith Butler Could Have Expanded Coaching Role In 2019

Not only is looking like the Pittsburgh Steelers will retain Keith Butler as their defensive coordinator in 2019, he’s also likely to take over the job Joey Porter previously had on the staff, coaching the outside linebackers as well.

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Friday, the Steelers are considering having Butler handle the role he formerly held for 12 years before being promoted to defensive coordinator — coaching the outside linebackers after the tean decided not to renew Porter’s contract last week.
