LATROBE, Pa. -- Keith Butler proves loyalty still exists in the NFL.
Many NFL assistants would have jumped at the chance for such a promotion, not knowing if they would get another such opportunity. But Butler turned it down for multiple reasons.
He didn't like the thought of coaching the 3-4 defense without linebackers like those in Pittsburgh.
There also were concerns about working for a new ownership group in Miami, as opposed to the stability of working for the Rooney family in Pittsburgh.
