The Steelers are expected to retain linebackers coach Keith Butler, according to an NFL Network report. Earlier reports suggested Indianapolis coveted Butler, who was expected to interview with the Colts today.

Also, the Steelers have expressed interest in interviewing former Kansas City coach Todd Haley to fill the vacant offensive coordinator position. Haley, Green Bay assistant Tom Clements and quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner are considered among the front runners to replace Bruce Arians, who landed in Indianapolis after a short retirement.

With Butler returning, the focus shifts again on him being the likely successor to defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau. Butler's contract had expired, but weekend negotiations accelerated after the Colts extended him an offer.

Ravens hire Caldwell

Jim Caldwell is back in the NFL, this time as the Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach.

The 57-year-old Caldwell was hired yesterday by the Ravens. The appointment comes less than two weeks after Caldwell was fired as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts following a 2-14 season.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin met with Caldwell over the weekend to discuss the offensive coordinator's job.
