Since former Steelers defensive Coordinator Dick LeBeau “resigned” a week and a half ago, the writing has been all over the wall indicating his move to Arizona. According to Alex Marvez, the two sides are finalizing a deal for LeBeau to become Arizona’s new linebacker’s coach.

As inevitable as the move to Arizona seemed, taking a role as a linebacker’s coach is pretty unexpected. Linebacker’s coach is a pretty big drop off from defensive coordinator or defensive consultant in Arizona. It will be interesting to see exactly what role he ultimately plays in Arizona.
