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.
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.
