I have a feeling that if Haley does leave, they'd be very quick to ask Norv in for an interview. While it is strange, I'm wondering whether or not Tomlin was happy with the playcalling himself, regardless of what he said to the media. Behind closed doors, it'd be interesting to see what kind of relationship Tomlin had with Todd and if their ideology ever clashed.

The Steelers would not have granted them permission to talk to him, otherwise.
Umm...... no.

Well im thinking the same thing, if Tomlin has anything to do with it im sure it wont come out in the open till Haley's gone.

I'm not the biggest fan of what Haley did this year, but to be honest, there's a lot of stuff going on in Pittsburgh. Between Rooney sticking his nose where it never belongs, Tomlin reacting to Mr. Rooney sticking his nose where it doesn't belong, and the crushing injuries and lack of talent at RB....I think Haley was trying to make everyone happy, and it didn't work with the available talent. I believe with a healthy OL and the young OL more experienced, his offense will most likely improve greatly next year. I don't blame everything on Haley. There are a lot of contributing factors. I'm interested to see what adjustments he will make to the scheme and finding a way to play to the strengths of his current WR.

He has to "settle", because no team will hire him as a head coach (after failing twice).

I can't see why the Cheifs are interviewing Haley when they want Reid as there coach unless Haley would be there OC

The Steelers would never hinder a player from moving up in the world. They always grant their coordinators permission to talk to other teams about being a HC.

TANGENT: Which is why the writing is on the wall about Butler eventually taking over as the DC. He didn't interview for a few DC positions, and the Steelers don't usually step in the way... unless... Butler was promised something in Pittsburgh.

Just like Omar Khan will likely be the GM for the Steelers within the next couple of years. He easily could have left for a GM job elsewhere... but... chose to stay.

BACK TO HALEY: All of that said, that doesn't rule out some friction (behind closed doors) between Tomlin & Haley... but it also doesn't necessarily indicate that there is indeed friction.

Whiz and Arians both got the team to the playoffs in their first years. No excuses.

Apples to Oranges. They were both head coaches. Haley was an OC. Not the same. At all.
