Steelers OC Todd Haley won't interview with Cardinals

The title now is...

Is Todd Haley interviewing with Arizona Cardinals?

*Updated*

Where in the world is Todd Haley? With the Arizona Cardinals looking for their next head coach, we have conflicting reports on the whereabouts of the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator.

Citing a source close to Haley, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport first reported Wednesday that he won't interview with the Cardinals after he requested permission for an interview.

"He loves (the) Steelers job," the source said. "He's very happy."

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette later reported that Haley was, in fact, in Arizona on Wednesday to meet with Cardinals brass, but it was Haley's agent who told Rapoport "no interview" was taking place.

Steelers assistants have since told Rapoport they believe he's interviewing with Arizona. The agent denies this. The Cardinals, meanwhile, declined comment.

Another source with knowledge of Haley's thinking told Rapoport the coach wouldn't interview with teams unless it's clear he has a "very real" chance of winning the job. Haley -- who isn't exactly on sure-footing in Pittsburgh -- believes the Cardinals already know him well from his two-year run as coordinator in Arizona from 2008 to 2009.

Steelers fans are still making up their minds about Todd Haley, but the team's offensive coordinator is certain about Pittsburgh.

Haley has unfinished business in Pittsburgh. A perennial playoff team under former coordinator Bruce Arians, the Steelers sunk to 21st in offense in 2012 and missed the postseason for the first time since 2009.

From Haley's first moments in town, whispers of discord with starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger dominated. The coach and his star passer swatted most of those reports down, but Big Ben was never at ease in Haley's scheme. His numbers were strong, but Roethlisberger is a player used to calling many of his own plays and leaning on creativity in the no-huddle.

We didn't see much of that in Pittsburgh this season, and Haley might be determined to return and show he can do the job as well the guy before him.

So, I don't know what the hell is going on. This is turning into a clusterfuck.

And yet:


Report: Todd Haley interviewing with Cardinals today
Posted by Michael David Smith on January 9, 2013, 1:36 PM EST
Todd Haley AP

Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is reportedly interviewing with the Cardinals today for their head-coaching vacancy.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Haley is in Arizona today for the Cardinals interview. That news comes as something of a surprise, because there have been multiple reports that Haley was happy to stay in Pittsburgh and wasn’t looking to leave. In fact, agent Jerome Stanley told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that Haley is not interviewing.

The Cardinals have neither confirmed nor denied that Haley is a candidate for their head-coaching vacancy.

The 45-year-old Haley was well regarded during his previous stint with the Cardinals, as their offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008. In fact, he was so well regarded that he parlayed his work there into a head-coaching stint with the Chiefs. That, however, did not go well and he was fired during his third season, in 2011. Haley has also spent time on the coaching staffs of the Jets, Bears and Cowboys.

Haley said he was happy and wanted to stay then Rooney mused about him retiring.

sounds like he likes his job in Pittsburgh and doesn't want to lose it, but he really wants to be a head coach again.
