Add another name to the list of possible OC candidates, as today Mike Tomlin spoke to former Chiefs head coach Toddy Haley about the position.
According to Steelers.com, Tomlin spoke to Todd at the team’s practice facility.
The 45-year-old was canned by the Chiefs late in the season with three games left. He was 5-8 there this season, this after he led the team to the AFC West title a season ago, getting beat in the AFC Wild Card game by the Ravens.
Haley was the OC for the Cardinals when they played the Steelers for the Super Bowl in SB 43. He worked as an NFL assistant for four different teams over a 10-year span. He started as a wide receivers coach with the New York Jets in 1999; moved to Chicago to coach the Bears wide receivers in 2001; became the wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator in Dallas in 2004; and then was hired as Arizona’s offensive coordinator in 2007.
Haley is the son of Dick Haley, a Steelers defensive back from 1961-64 who went on to team with Art Rooney Jr. and Bill Nunn to head up the personnel department during the 1970’s.
