Rumor: Todd Haley going back to Arizona?
 
Just saw on NBC 41 Jack Harry is reporting that Jason LaCanfora is saying Haley will be Arizonas top choice for replacing Whisenhunt.

With the Arizona Cardinals losing nine straight games after a 4-0 start, including a historic 58-0 loss last week to rival Seattle, team officials are mulling possible changes for the offseason, sources said, with former Cardinals coordinator Todd Haley a top option to replace coach Ken Whisenhunt if a change is made.

Haley has shined in his first season as Pittsburgh's offensive coordinator -- following his firing as Chiefs coach last year -- and his name continues to come up in internal discussions in Arizona, sources said. The Bidwill family remains big supporters of Haley, who served as offensive coordinator in 2007-08 and was play caller for Arizona's lone Super Bowl team. The Bidwills pushed for Haley to be back on Whisenhunt's staff after last season, facilitating a series of meetings between Whisenhunt and Haley, but Whisenhunt had already committed to coordinator Mike Miller calling plays and ended up retaining the staff favorite.

The Cardinals have been stout defensively under coordinator Ray Horton but have failed on the offensive side of the ball amid a revolving door at quarterback. While it would be out of character for the franchise to absorb a financial hit to make a coaching change (Whisenhunt is still owed $5.5 million, sources said), the move is possible given how poorly this season has gone. Arizona is 17-28 since 2009 and has not been a serious playoff contender since Kurt Warner's retirement after the '09 season.

Also, assistant general manager Steve Keim, who has a strong reputation around the league, could perhaps end up replacing long-time GM Rod Graves. Notably, Keim shares a strong relationship with Haley from Haley's previous time in Arizona.

At this point, it would be surprising to many if someone other than Haley ended up coaching the Cardinals should Whisenhunt's tenure there end.

Haley's possible departure from the Steelers could be part of a larger trend of OC turnover within the AFC North. The Ravens have already fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, Bengals OC Jay Gruden is expected to be a top candidate for multiple head coaching vacancies and new ownership and management in Cleveland means the future of head coach Pat Shurmur and his staff is in doubt.

Well shit. I was one of the people who said there's no way in hell he ever gets another head coaching gig ever again. What a difference a year can make.

I don't think I would wish that on the Cards. His HC with OC overseer crap just isn't going to lead to stability anywhere.

Fitz will be stoked about it.

Norv Turner has spent 15 years as a head coach in this league. I'm sure Todd Haley can get another shot.

if turds like Wade Phillips and Chan Gailey can get 2nd HC shots, so can odd Todd

Brian Daboll got 3 NFL teams to hire his offensive play style

THREE teams bought into the crap soup he was selling for a playbook

think about that

Marty said this a while ago.

jspchief 12-17-2012 12:31 AM

Scott Polio should warn the Cards. They have no idea what they are getting in Haley.

Besides the logo, I'm not sure you could really qualify the Chiefs as an NFL team. Right now Jamaal is looking for peer support from Barry Sanders.

I never understood the hate with that guy, he had all the makings of a good coach, he was just being held back by a maniacal freak.

Thought he loved being in Pittsburgh

Yeah, right.

It was all Pioli's fault that Todd hired four offensive coordinators in 2.5 years.
