Count Antonio Brown as a Big Fan of New OC Todd Haley

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (84) returns a punt for a 60-yard touchdown past Cincinnati Bengals’ Manny Lawson

While there has been much concern over how new offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s schemes would be handled by the Steelers and whether or not Haley and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger would get along, wide receiver Antonio Brown is effusive in his praise for Haley’s style, Dan Gigler of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

“It’s definitely a big difference,” Brown said Wednesday.

“Todd’s really a cool guy — shaking guy’s hands, communicating with guys, putting in that extra time for guys, visiting with guys. Bruce [Arians] wasn’t really that type of guy — he just went about his business.

“Todd is more team-oriented and more communicative with players and trying to work together with all the men, so he’s getting to know everyone,” Brown said

“That’s something special to be a part of.”

“He’s a great guy. Definitely not what people made him out to be.”

“You can’t go off of what you hear about a person until you really get to meet him, and, since I met this guy, he’s been first class. … [Haley] asks me what I’m seeing on the field and [makes suggestions] — ‘look at this route, you can do this better.’ When you have men like that who are willing to … be on the same page as players it makes it better for you, and you’re more willing to want to play hard for them.”

“That’s what we’re establishing in camp. Establish our identity, get on the same page, know the way he thinks, build that relationship.”
