OK, so he isn’t a head coach this season…
Former Chiefs coach Todd Haley is the next best thing, the offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers. That’s one of the best jobs in the NFL outside of being a head coach. The Steelers are "money" when it comes to the post season. And the Super Bowl has been all too often a stop for this storied franchise.
"I am excited about the opportunity to come back home and work for a tremendous organization," Haley says.
Translation: The Kansas City Chiefs organization is nothing.
It’s no secret that Scott Pioli and Haley hated each other, as first reported here on KC Confidential, where I was told by a comment idiot to stop making stuff up or I could be sued. Then I explained that it was a hate war between them and Haley knew he was to be fired soon. I offered as evidence that Haley and his wife had quit Woodside and the two wives didn’t speak anymore.
Well, it all ended up true, huh haters?
This also gives credence to Haley’s telling the world his phone and others were bugged at Arrowhead and maybe beyond. The front page story that had been talked about for two weeks on 610 Sports with Nick Wright and crew to no avail. The NFL and Chiefs fan base did not react in any big way to the ARROWHEAD WATERGATE scandal.
Haley’s hiring, by one of the leagues top franchises, kinda shows that they believe Todd not Scott.
It would appear that Arrowhead these days, NOT A NICE PLACE TO WORK.
And that’s saying a lot since it totally sucked during the Carl Peterson regime as well.
Btw, the Haley bugging story was also on the KC Star‘s front page.
Many consider Haley to be an outstanding football mind and a very good coach. And this job offer and position proves point. It’s likely after two or three years of doing a great job at Pittsburgh, Haley will once again become a head coach in the NFL.
He’s young and outspoken, with new and clever ideas. He had very little talent, no quarterback and a hateful general manager from Day One in KC. Granted Todd was a bit over the top himself at times, but it seems to me that he may have been driven there by the front office.
Todd Haley WON, no question.
He is with a much sharper organization, a team with an elite quarterback in Big Ben and a likely post season squad. The Chiefs, well who knows at this point? Clearly we are not the apple of anyone’s eye around the league.
NO BIG NAME ANYTHING IN COACHING WANTED TO EVEN INTERVIEW FOR A JOB HERE.
That is so sad. Jeff Fisher said NO to KC before they asked and took a job with a franchise he felt was worse than ours.
So yes, Toddy Haley got the LAST LAUGH.
He also gets over $1 million a year salary – not bad for a guy who the Chiefs fired. Trust me, he’s smiling today, big-time.
