Former Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Todd Haley Linked To Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets

The Arizona Cardinals appear to be on the verge of bringing back their former offensive coordinator and Kansas City Chiefs head coach, Todd Haley, in a similar capacity according to CBS Sports.

The Cardinals are in much need of an offensive boost after finishing 28th in the league in 2011 and they could be hoping that Haley can help make that happen. In his last season in Arizona in 2009 before leaving for the Chiefs, Haley helped the Cardinals finish 13th in total offense with Kurt Warner leading the team to their Super Bowl loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Haley would be taking over an offense in Arizona right now that has seen John Skelton and Kevin Kolb under center recently, a far cry from Warner.

But the Kansas City Star's Kent Babb has also heard that the New York Jets could also be in play for Haley's duties. With current offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer reportedly taking an interview with the Jacksonville Jaguars for their vacant head coaching position, the Jets might be looking to replace a position that isn't even currently open. The already always-interesting Jets' team would be even more of a media target with the fiery Haley being in charge of readjusting Santonio Holmes' attitude.

Either way it looks like Haley will find himself a new job soon and it'll most likely be as an offensive coordinator somewhere, not as head coach.
