Now that Haley has been named our guy at HC, the importance of the Def Coordinator has skyrocketed because Haley is "offensive minded". So who are the possible names out there as someone who can turn around a terrible, but young, defense including the worst pass rush?

Romeo Crennel is the obvious choice since he worked with Haley and Pioli on the Jets, but Crennel and Mangini have said they'd like for him to remain in Cleveland.

Hey! Look at Dick Vermil, he was an offensive minded guy, and he didn't have the greatest D in the world, but he had players. Like Jared Allen. They just need to find the right DC that has know how.

I heard Keith Butler's name come up. He is currently the LB coach for the Steelers and has been for the past 8 years. First time D-Coord. type but a solid guy given his track record and the talent he has developed along with LeBeau (Harrison, Farrior, Porter etc...) I think he'd be an awesome fit and could really be a valuable asset in looking over our limited core of LBs here in KC.

I heard Butler too, but for the Arizona opening. I would like to see someone who's been with LB's because at this point I don't see a DC moving so it would have to be a defensive assistant from somewhere else. Our LB's aren't bad, it wouldn't hurt to get on in the draft though. I think we just need a good scheme rather than a LB overhaul. It would be nice to see Frazier as DC/ asst. coach but if I was in his position, I wouldn't leave Jared Allen and both of the Williams DT's.

I don't think you watched the same team as I did. Our defense allowed almost 400 yards a game - good for 31st in the league; and allowed 28 pts/game - good for 28th in the league. Rocky Boiman? Not an NFL starter.
Pat Thomas? Not an NFL starter. Donnie Edwards? No longer an NFL starter. Demorrio Williams? LMFAO! And Derrick Johnson has yet to live up to his potential.
Our linebackers ARE bad. Out.:sign0153:

I think DJ and Demorrio Williams should stay. I personally think those stats could also be credited to the several injuries at D line too. Yea we should pick up another LB and possibly another for depth but I think Donnie Edwards can help the younger guys as a mentor. Sure hes a lil old but hes able to play just not as productive as he used to be. That coach from Miami doesn't seem bad. I think our best D is when we got an outside rush but that has been a huge hole since we traded Jared Allen.

Gruden had nothing to do with Tampa's defense. Monty Kiffin was given free rein.

I think we have to remember that the poor performance of our defense is due in large part to the defensive scheme we were running.

i think we can rule butler out



The Cardinals new defensive coordinator likely will be a familiar face after the leading outside candidate elected to stay in his current job. The Steelers granted permission for linebackers coach Keith Butler to interview with the Cardinals, but Butler decided to stay in Pittsburgh, according to an NFL source. It's not clear if Butler was offered the job with the Cardinals. Coach Ken Whisenhunt has interviewed linebackers coach Bill Davis and secondary coach Teryl Austin for the coordinator's job. KTAR reported last Friday that Davis had been selected, but that was before the Cardinals had received permission to speak with Butler."

Anyone from Pitt. should now be ruled as highly unlikely as its been reported on ESPN that management has ruled to keep the coaching staff intact for the 09 season for the forseeable future so far.
