Looking like Dick LeBeau now heading to Titans. Always good to make the wife happy. Seems to be the case here.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) January 26, 2015
The Hall of Fame coach reportedly was being considered for a job on the staff of the Arizona Cardinals recently, but that prospect ended on Sunday when a report came out that he would not decide to join Bruce Arians.
The primary factors in the decision for LeBeau seem to be both the location of his new job, so that he can remain close with his family, and the prospect that he can still be a defensive coordinator in the NFL instead of being a position coach.
While the idea of LeBeau coaching against the Pittsburgh Steelers would have become a reality had he joined the Arizona Cardinals, it would take a playoff trip for both the Titans and the Steelers for that to happen in the 2015-2016 NFL season.
