The Steelers are faced with the possibility of losing another young coach from Mike Tomlin's staff.

Defensive assistant Jerry Olsavsky is interviewing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to become linebackers coach -- a move that was likely precipitated when linebackers coach Keith Butler turned down an opportunity to become defensive coordinator in Indianapolis.

Olsavsky, who played from 1989-1997 with the Steelers, would have been in position to become linebackers coach if Butler decided to leave.

The Steelers already lost one of the young assistants from their staff when Harold Goodwin, an assistant offensive line coach, left to become offensive line coach with the Colts.

(Correction: an earlier version of this story stated that Olsavsky interviewed with the Miami Dolphins. The Post-Gazette regrets the error)
