He gone. This is great. I think Tomlin is pissed and will make legit changes.
He should have been gone but like you I agree this is step in the right direction.
great news he was terrible as a coach. let's keep em comin
Yes! Now make the call to Greene. Would be a good first step.
More changes to come I hope.
butler and smith please! then i will have hope for next year
That's fine but a position coach doesn't make or break a team. We missed out on the playoffs in an absolutely epic way. More changes are needed that firing a position coach.
tomlin is staying so might as well fire the others lol
Joey Porter will be the next special guest on Instagram live with James Harrison... With ab's dumbass in the background yelling karma
If there were more changes coming, I'd expect them to announce them all at once. Since they haven't, can this mean Butler stays? Danny Smith? I don't know why they'd announce changes in dribbs and drabs.
One down, many to go.
Porter took one for the Tomlin team. I would be surprised if Butler even goes because that decision should of probably come down first. Joey and Tomlin I think are tight but I'm also pretty sure he is with JH as well. Could get very entertaining . I still think Porter took yet another bullet so to speak. It's gonna be hard to fire Butler if Tomlin had a major hand in the D which according to a few sources he has.
I don't think it would fly for those who know the real hierarchy with the defense if Butler becomes a scapegoat and Tomlin moon walks into the background. I have a sick feeling one of our most obvious moves isn't gonna be made at all. Stay tuned.
its a start but not near enough
Porter - check
Smith - ?
Butler - ?
Tomlin - ?
The further they go down this list the better off the Steelers will be. I hope they're not done.
I like Porter but I think he was a horrible coach.
Just as a point of clarification he wasn't fired anymore than BA or Haley were. He was informed his contract wouldn't be renewed. The difference being this shows strength when really it's weak. This isn't Tomlin taking decisive action and firing Porter, instead just they intend to go in another direction and thank him for his hard work.
Really good point.
You are right but I have to say this is more about actions then just a position coach. I love this move and like many others hope there is more to come.
So the question is. When is Butlers and Smiths up because evidently that is the only criteria they use. Are they so cheap they may have to eat a coaches contract. If so ,that's sad.
Butler's contract is up now.
Did he come out and say he would love to coach on the steelers staff, last year maybe or the year before?
He was a good player but not a good coach.
Kevin Greene is with the Jets
Something tells me butler is staying lol
