What coordinators are going to coach with him? Pioli is a smug one who sucks the penis who few want to work for, and Haley is in the same boat.
I think he'll do well in Arizona because he runs a disciplined team that works hard and responds well to coaching, which is my top criteria for a head coach.
Your point about coordinators is fair. I don't make excuses for stuff like that. And maybe Haley is purely insufferable to work with. But I also have heard plenty to suggest that Pioli didn't give Haley any say whatsoever in decisions like this, including what kind of an offense they were going to run. So reason to be skeptical, but still want to see how he responds with a GM who gives him even a tiny voice in picking his own staff.
