Default Steelers Interview Haley *Updated*

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports...lfQ_story.html

PITTSBURGH ó The Pittsburgh Steelers have interviewed former Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley for the teamís vacant offensive coordinator position.

Haley, fired by the Chiefs in December, met with Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin on Tuesday.

The Steelers need to replace Bruce Arians, who was not retained. Arians was hired to the same position by the Indianapolis Colts on Monday. Pittsburgh finished 12th in the NFL in yards in 2011 but just 21st in points scored.

The 45-year-old Haley went 19-26 in two-plus seasons with the Chiefs, leading them to the 2010 AFC West title.

Haley spent 10 seasons as an assistant before being hired by Kansas City. He was offensive coordinator for Arizona in 2007-08, helping lead the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance.

Moderator Edit:

Haley interviews, unlikely to get Arians' job

Former Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley, an Upper St. Clair native, is the latest candidate to interview for the Steelers' vacant offensive coordinator position. But the possibility of him being hired to replace Bruce Arians seems remote.

Haley, the son of former Steelers personnel director Dick Haley, was at the South Side facility Tuesday to meet with coach Mike Tomlin -- an interview uncharacteristically announced on the team's website.

Haley is the second former head coach to interview for the position. Former Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Caldwell was at the Steelers facility Saturday. Caldwell never was offered the position and agreed Monday to become the Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach.

Haley's interview was something of a surprise because he has a reputation for not getting along with players and coaches. He was the offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals when they lost against the Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII.

He's originally from Upper St Clair.

This is some serious s*** and a big deal. He could very well get this job.

I like this a lot. Hailey seems to be a fiery competitor who expects the best out of his players. This would be fun to watch!!

definitely an upgrade over arians and he knows how to use his weapons. hire the man

my only worry about him is he only gave the ball to jamaal charles like 12x a game when he was averaging over 7 yards a carry. Though I wonder if part of that is due to charles being a smaller back and probably less durable than the typical rb who can chuck it 20+ times
