Dick LeBeau only coaching Steelers

With Dick LeBeau's contract set to expire and speculation about his retirement, the Pittsburgh Steelers' defensive coordinator provided some clarity about his future.

LeBeauLeBeau"I promise you, if I'm coaching, it will be the Pittsburgh Steelers," LeBeau told the NFL Network Wednesday.

LeBeau said after Pittsburgh's previous Super Bowl run following the 2008 season that he's coaching on a year-to-year basis. Now 73, it won't be a huge surprise if LeBeau decides in the offseason that Super Bowl XLV is his final game as a coach.

There were rumors about LeBeau becoming a coaching free agent and possibly signing with the Arizona Cardinals next season. But we mentioned in the Seven-step drop that was a pipe dream, at best. LeBeau completely closed the door on that possibility Wednesday.
