Pittsburgh Steelers Rumored To Fill Offensive Coordinator From In House Versus Hire Todd Haley

Todd Haley had another interview in his search for an NFL coaching position, but apparently the discussion with the Pittsburgh Steelers went as well as the ones with the Arizona Cardinals and the New York Jets. That’s frustrating for a guy who was a bright young offensive coach in the league just a few years ago and even won a division title last year. Yet reports about the Steelers say that head coach Mike Tomlin is likely looking to fill the team’s offensive coordinator opening from in-house.

ESPN’s NFL Rumors column says, "It’s been two weeks since Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians “retired.” According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Mark Kaboly, that’s the longest that coach Mike Tomlin has taken to replace a departed coach in his four-year tenure with the club. Kaboly infers from the extended wait that Tomlin may be aiming to promote running backs coach Kirby Wilson to the OC role."

That leaves Haley without a job and without a real place to take his trade. There are a few more moves to be made this off-season, but it would be very surprising (and sad) if Haley didn’t find a home for the 2012 NFL season. He deserved better from the Chiefs, so here’s hoping he finds some place to be.
