When it was announced that Dick LeBeau was resigning from his post as the Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator, but not retiring, people wondered where he would end up.

Some thought Arizona, which may be about to lose defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, would be a natural landing spot, with a staff led by former Steelers assistant Bruce Arians.

Looks like that may be the case.

It’s not clear what role the 77-year-old LeBeau would have with the Cardinals, if he does indeed join the organization.

However, it would be difficult to see adding him as anything but a good move for the team. LeBeau has more than 40 years of NFL coaching experience, with the last 11 coming in Pittsburgh running the defense.
