Steelers defensive coordinator Butler retires
Butler has been on the Steelers' coaching staff for the last 19 seasons. He joined the staff as a linebackers coach in 2003 and served in the role for 12 seasons before replacing NFL Hall of Famer Dick LeBeau as defensive coordinator in 2015.
The Steelers have led the league in sacks in each of the last five seasons under Butler. No team has recorded more sacks than Pittsburgh since the 65-year-old was named coordinator.
Pittsburgh has also finished within the top six in yardage allowed four times during Butler's tenure as defensive coordinator. The unit regressed in 2021, placing 24th in yardage and 20th in scoring.
Butler won two Super Bowls during his time on the Steelers' staff. He also enjoyed a 10-year playing career with the Seattle Seahawks from 1978-87.
