Titans | Dick LeBeau to have input in draft

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 13:42:43 -0800

Tennessee Titans assistant head coach Dick LeBeau will have some influence on who the team takes in this year's draft, according to general manager Ruston Webster. The Titans will have to get better at linebacker to improve as a whole on defense, and LeBeau's team's in Pittsburgh often excelled because of superior linebacker play. LeBeau may try to convince the Titans to pass on a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft for a defensive player such as Southern California LB Leonard Williams, who is considered the top defensive player available.

Steelers | Dick LeBeau not thinking about retirement

Wed, 12 Jun 2013 10:19:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau was noncommittal about his future, stating at the team's three-day minicamp,"I don't think, because of the situation I'm in, it would be very productive to think about it. I go one day at a time really and one year at a time and feel blessed that I'm still in the game and surrounded with young people that are working hard. I don't worry too much about the future. Some of us don't have as much future as some of the others."

Speculation has increased that LeBeau is closer to retirement since linebackers coach Keith Butler chose not to accept an offer to become the defensive coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts. He's considered the coordinator-in-waiting.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers' team D hasn't been as good as fantasy owners have expected it to be in the past couple of years, overall, so perhaps LeBeau is losing his edge a bit. Still, Pittsburgh's unit will probably be a popular unit again come draft day.
