PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After reports leaked out on Monday, the Steelers officially named Todd Haley as their new offensive coordinator.
Financial details and the length of the deal were not released by the team.
“I am excited about the opportunity to come back home and work for a tremendous organization,” Haley said in a statement. “It is an honor to work with the Rooney family and Coach Tomlin and continue the success that has become synonymous with the Steelers. My father has so many fond memories both from his playing days and his time in the personnel department with the team, and I look forward to helping bring more championships to Pittsburgh and to being a part of one of the storied franchises in the NFL.”
Haley has a good resume, including three years as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Before then, he was offensive coordinator in Arizona and worked with Kurt Warner when the Cardinals got to the Super Bowl against the Steelers in 2008.
According to the statement, “[Haley] is the son of Dick Haley, who spent 44 seasons in the NFL including serving as the Steelers’ director of player personnel from 1971-90.”
