    Joey Porter is gone.
    No replacement OLB coach is hired.
    Butlerís role expands... to OLB coach.

    Meanwhile, we have two DB coaches... one of whom has DC experience.

    ARII has never allowed a Tomlin to hire/fire his own coordinators.

    SUMMATION:
    Tomlin is being very Machiavellian (in circumventing the system).

    Why does everyone forget that in the yelling about TOmlin?s failures as a HC? He never got to pick his DC....

    He decided to keep LeBeau when he was hired I believe.

    True...although that never sounded totally legit to me.

    HC interview from nowhere to getting hired and Lebeau wasn’t forced on him at all? It made sense as Tomlin wasn’t a 3-4 guy. But we can see it now with Butler. Tomlin is a cover 0-2 kinda guy. Butler is a cover 3 zone guy. WHenever the Steelers play cover 0-2, things look better. Whenever they play Butler’s zones — things don’t.

    Long story short - I think Tomlin is trying to make a Frankenstein DC that “solves the problem”.

    Butler is in charge of stopping the run and rushing the passer. SOmething he can likely do well drunk and without much preparation.

    Bradley and Austin are in charge of the back end and making sure SOMEONE has an idea of how to deal with empty sets and NOT putting LBs on # WRs.

    Also Austin gives the team and option for an in season change.

    The Rooneys made a suggestion Tomlin "decided" to accept

    This from the press conference announcing Tomlin's hiring

    Filling out the staff is up to Tomlin, Steelers president Art Rooney II said.

    But LeBeau came "strongly recommended."

    The rest have been "recommended" by Rooney.

    Nothing particularly subtle there

    Butler can handle the additional duties because the truth is and has been that he's only the DC in title only. Tomlin is and has been the DC of this team going back to 17. And of course this is the reason Butler wasn't fired. Because he can't be held responsible for Tomlin's creation.

    Thereís actually a few videos on the internet showing Tomlin make the play call and Butler call it in.

    In one video, Tomlin makes the call and Porter and Butler panic because the personnel isnít correct. Porter was the one who noticed first.
