The Kansas City Chiefs have received permission to talk to AZ Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley. This should come as a shocker to no one…
It was unclear when or where the meeting between Haley and Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli would take place.
Haley, 42, gained prominence this year as the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator. The Cardinals won the NFC West, had one of the league’s highest-scoring offensive teams and advanced to their first Super Bowl, where they were beaten in the final seconds by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
This rumor has been going on the mill for a few weeks now and looks like it has finally come to be.
Don’t forget that Haley is a Pioli guy:
Haley and Pioli worked together from 1997 through 1999 with the New York Jets, Pioli as the director of pro personnel and Haley as an assistant coach.
I was impressed with Haley’s offense against the Steelers, mainly with his ability to make mid-game adjustments (something the Chiefs needed DESPERATELY last season). But like I have said many times “In Pioli I trust” until proven otherwise!
If Todd Haley comes to Kansas City to join the Chiefs I with him the best in his journey as a head coach. Let’s do this…
