The Pittsburgh Steelers have promoted linebackers coach Keith Butler to replace Dick LeBeau as their new defensive coordinator.

LeBeau resigned after his 13th season as the Steelers' defensive coordinator.

In the past, Butler has declined other job opportunities.

LeBeau could potentially join the Arizona Cardinals' coaching staff.
