Is Nolan Waiting for LeBeau?
Update: 01.20.07 — Sports Illustrated is reporting that the Steelers have hire Vikings DC Mike Tomlin as the next head coach. Now we just have to hope they let LeBeau go and Nolan can work his magic and get LeBeau to take the trip to the West Coast.
01.18.07 – It’s been what almost a week since Nolan met and interviewed Donnie Henderson and no other names have been brought in for an interview. In that same span Nolan has interviewed one person for each of the other coaching vacancies and filled both with that only candidate. In Matt Maiocco’s blog he was asked what other candidates Nolan might be waiting for or looking at and it was rumored that if Mike Timlin is hired as the next Steelers head coach he will want to bring in his own staff, which means Dick LeBeau would be an odd man out. We all know Nolan is high on the 3-4 defense and I’m not sure there is a better 3-4 defensive coordinator out there than LeBeau. Could we as Niner fans be that lucky to have a staff of Nolan, Turner, LeBeau and Singletary. Man I hope so.
