The Indianapolis Star reported this morning that Pittsburgh Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler was preparing to interview for the Indianapolis Colts’ defensive coordinator slot. Now I’m hearing quite a bit of Internet chatter that Butler will, indeed, be hired by the Colts as their DC. If true, the Colts could have a decided Steeltown flair moving forward, as Indy has reportedly pegged former Pittsburgh offensive coordinator for the same duties here. As models for success go, a rebuilding team could pick a worse franchise to emulate than the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Of course, the same might have been said about the Indianapolis Colts before August of 2011.
