As I’ve done before, I am starting a rumor here that I’m hoping will spread to the Packers’ front office and lead to swift action. The rumor is this: Keith Butler (LB coach at Pittsburgh) will take over as the new defensive coordinator.
Keith Butler is someone I know virtually nothing about. However, I do know that he is the LB coach of the best LB unit in football and he has worked with Dick LeBeau. If we can’t just steal LeBeau with a $30 million, 3 year offer (which is what I’d offer him), the next best thing may be to tab his LB coach as our new defensive coordinator. I would consider hiring anyone who has MET Dick LeBeau.
