Miami has hired (http://www.palmbeachpost.com/dolphins/content/sports/epaper/2008/06/10/a3c_dolphins_0611.html) the former Steeler director of player personnel who helped form the team that won four super bowls in the 70's.

The player personnel director for Pittsburgh's Super Bowl winners of the 1970s will help try to rebuild the Dolphins.

Dick Haley, a veteran of 42 seasons in NFL player personnel, will be a player personnel analyst for the Dolphins, the team announced Tuesday.

The team also added Chris Shea as personnel coordinator, Mike Murphy as a regional scout and Joe Schoen as a national scout. All have ties to current Dolphins executives.

Haley, 70, was Pittsburgh's director of player personnel for 20 years starting in 1971. He helped to draft many of the players who helped the Steelers win four Super Bowls from 1974 to 1979.

Haley's '74 draft class featured four future Hall of Famers in the first five rounds: wide receivers Lynn Swann and John Stallworth, center Mike Webster and middle linebacker Jack Lambert.

When Haley left the Steelers, he joined the New York Jets in 1992, working with Bill Parcells from '97 to 2000.
