Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau told the team that he'll be back for 2013.
LeBeau, 75, said "it will be up to [head coach] Mike Tomlin," but he did tell his defensive players that he would return for his tenth season as the team's defensive coordinator. Pittsburgh ranks No. 1 in total defense, but the unit ranks tenth in points allowed, and is No. 27 in turnovers forced. The defense is also getting long in the tooth and is in major need of an infusion of young talent.
