Pittsburgh Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler agreed to a new contract with the team on Monday, one day before he was scheduled to interview with the Indianapolis Colts for their vacant defensive coordinator position, according to league sources.



Smith: Recent hires don't quite fit

There have been a flurry of new hires around the NFL. And while Jason Smith doesn't dislike any of them, he writes that some could have been matched better to their situations. More ...


Meanwhile, former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley could emerge as a candidate for Pittsburgh's offensive coordinator position, league sources said.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has been making calls around the league and inquiring about Haley, who had been in talks with the Arizona Cardinals as well.

Haley has strong ties to the Pittsburgh area and the Rooney family. Pittsburgh is looking to replace Bruce Arians, who is joining the Colts.

Butler's contract had expired, although he had been in negotiations with the Steelers. He is highly respected and has long been viewed as the successor to LeBeau, who goes year-to-year on his contracts but is showing no signs of slowing down.

The news of Todd Haley being considered for the the OC job is intriguing.

If we hire him I have only one request of Mr. Rooney...

NO "OLD STYLE" OFFENSE. We play in the 21st century NFL, not in leather helmets. Let Roethlisberger soar and bring the run game up to the passing games level...not bringing the pass game down in any way.

I'm just not completely sold on Todd Haley. He completely lost that team in KC this year. Now granted he lost his starting QB and RB and had a rash of injuries but still. I'm not completely thumbs down but I'm not doing dances just yet.

Big difference being an OC then HC...Look at Norv Turner......As for Haley even though he had a **** load of talent to work with in AZ he still was a damn good OC with the Cards.....He would have a **** load of talent to work with the Steelers...I would be more then thrilled with Todd Haley as OC and really I hope he is the next OC.....Him or Fitchner just name the damn OC already.....:lol:

I agree with this. Tomlin keeps the team in check and things in place and Haley calls the calls on offense. If we could score 30 plus points a game no one would be able to stop us! Our offense would go HAM

:clap::clap::clap:He does need to be yelled at, and he needs to be Coached and to be more accurate ( his arm strength could be better also ), and to get rid of the ball quicker, when Todd was in AZ there offense was dangerous, i'm sure he would do the same if not be better with the talent we have :crossfingers: hoping we sign him...

In 2008, the year Haley as OC took the Cards to the SB, the team was #4 in total offense and #2 in Passing. They were dead last in rushing.

In 2007, they were 12th in total offense, 5th in passing and 29th in rushing.

As HC in Kansas City

In 2009, KC was 25th in Total offense, 25th in passing, 11th in rushing.

In 2010, KC was 12th in total offense, 30th in passing, 1st in rushing.

In 2011, KC was 27th in total offense, 25th in passing, 15th in rushing.

Frankly, these numbers are all over the place but I think you can point to one positive about Haley. It appears he does a pretty good job of adjusting to his talent. When his teams were loaded at QB and WR he flourished in the passing game and when he had better runners and worse QBs the team was better running the ball.

I'm not 100% on the Haley bandwagon, but I have to admit it would be interesting after looking at the numbers.

I think he has better talent here in Pitt than he had in KC. I think the RB talent is better here than he had in AZ, but Warner LFitz and Boldin were better than what we have.. Although we have better depth of QB, WR talent (more WR that are better than AZ)

I just don't care for this choice that much the more I think about it. I remember him screaming and carrying on like a lunatic on the sidelines, yelling at star players and just making a fool out of himself. Whether or not you think Ben needs more of a disciplined type of coach, this guy would be so over the top it wouldn't even be funny.

If Ben was all chummy chummy with Arians, do you really want to go polar opposite and bring in Haley?

same fearsome defense that beat the mighty packers.

crennel did great things with that defense, theya re a healthy eric berry and a NT away from being a top 3 defense.

haley was fired for the bad season...but come on, jamaal charles blowing out his knee, eric berry blowing out his knee on the cusp of a breakout year, and then cassel (king of painfully average QBs) breaking himself too leaving palko (king of painfully terrible QBs)

he was awesome in AZ and Dallas, very sound gameplanner and not a madden player

I don't understand what people have against charismatic characters. This team lacked passion last season, aside from a few young players. If for nothing else, Haley would bring in some new energy to this offense. Some much needed energy might I add. While I'm no fan of either of the Harbaugh's, I do admire the passion which they show on the sideline, and I think the players love them for doing so. Haley would be the same type of coach. Plus he is a brilliant OC.

Haley is the right choice. He game plans well and actually adjusts to the talent he has on his team. He also adjusts in game.

Fitchner is the safe hire, Haley is the right hire.

If the Steelers are worried about coaches yelling at players, then fire every coach and
let the players do whatever they want.

Haley adjusts well. In AZ, he adjusted to their personnel and had THREE 1,000 yard recievers, including Steve Breaston, who he made look like a very solid WR. When he went to KC, he turn JC into the leading rusher in the NFL.

Coach Mike Tomlin continued his search for an offensive coordinator when he interviewed Todd Haley today at the team’s practice facility.

The Steelers are looking for an offensive coordinator to replace Bruce Arians.

Haley, 45 on Feb. 28, most recently worked in the NFL as the coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. Hired there in 2009, Haley took the Chiefs to the AFC West title in 2010 but was fired 13 games into the 2011 season with Kansas City at 5-8.

Before being hired in Kansas City, Haley worked as an NFL assistant for four different teams over a 10-year span. He started as a wide receivers coach with the New York Jets in 1999; moved to Chicago to coach the Bears wide receivers in 2001; became the wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator in Dallas in 2004; and then was hired as Arizona’s offensive coordinator in 2007.

Haley is the son of Dick Haley, a Steelers defensive back from 1961-64 who went on to team with Art Rooney Jr. and Bill Nunn to head up the personnel department that built the four-time Super Bowl championship teams of the 1970s.

Former Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley, an Upper St. Clair native, is the latest candidate to interview for the Steelers' vacant offensive coordinator position. But the possibility of him being hired to replace Bruce Arians seems remote.

Haley, the son of former Steelers personnel director Dick Haley, was at the South Side facility Tuesday to meet with coach Mike Tomlin -- an interview uncharacteristically announced on the team's website.

Haley is the second former head coach to interview for the position. Former Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Caldwell was at the Steelers facility Saturday. Caldwell never was offered the position and agreed Monday to become the Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach.

Haley's interview was something of a surprise because he has a reputation for not getting along with players and coaches. He was the offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals when they lost against the Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII.
Meantime, Arians was announced Tuesday as the new offensive coordinator in Indianapolis, a move that came 10 days after the Steelers announced he had decided to retire. But Arians, 59, was not offered a contract to return in 2012 and never intended to retire. He considered several jobs, including quarterbacks coach in Arizona, before joining the Colts.

The Colts also announced they have signed former Steelers assistant offensive line coach Harold Goodwin as their offensive line coach.

02-01-2012, 09:01 AM
It really makes no sense for the Steelers to go with Randy Finchtner. He runs the same offense that Arians ran. He has no other experience other then running the spread. That offense is going to get Ben killed. Ben likes the offense because he gets to throw the ball more...Ben likes the in house candidate because he doesn't want to work harder then he has been. If you hire Finchtner, why not just keep Arians? Unless the only reason we fired Arians was because he kept talking about retirement...it makes no sense.

Clements and Haley are both very good candidates...and they have the experience to run a SB caliber offense. They both understand schemes and game planning. I personally think Haley is the better coach. But either is better then Arians. Trying to turn Ben into Aaron Rogers or Tom Brady is never going to work. Ben's decision making ability is way to slow to do it successfully. Something Arians never accepted. I also think Ben's ability to find open WR's is a little lacking. I love Ben as our QB. He's great. He's got SB rings. But you have to be honest with his shortcomings. I saw no improvement in Ben this year under the tutelage of Randy Finchtner.

This guy is reporting Alex Van Pelt has gotten some inquiries from Pittsburgh FO. Here is link.

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/post/_/id/41620/wake-up-call-steelers-ongoing-search

Biography
Alex Van Pelt enters his first season with Tampa Bay as quarterbacks coach after spending the previous four seasons (2006-09) on the staff of the Buffalo Bills.

Van Pelt entered the 2009 season as the Bills quarterbacks coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator in September. He originally joined the Bills as offensive quality control coach in 2006 and worked in that capacity for two seasons before being elevated to quarterbacks coach in 2008.

In his only season as offensive coordinator, Van Pelt led an offense that featured former backup RB Fred Jackson. The third-year pro rushed for a career-high 1,062 yards on 237 attempts (4.5 avg.) with two touchdowns in Van Pelt’s offense while also hauling in a career-high 46 receptions, good for second on the team, for 371 yards and two touchdowns. His 1,062 rushing yards ranked ninth in the AFC and his 1,433 total yards from scrimmage ranked 10th in the NFL and sixth in the AFC.

During his time as quarterbacks coach, he assisted in the development of QB Trent Edwards. Under the direction of Van Pelt, Edwards posted a 65.5 completion percentage to rank sixth in the NFL in 2008 as well second all-time in Bills history for a single season. Edwards also recorded a fourth-quarter passer rating of 106.3 to rank third in the NFL that season.

Van Pelt joined the Bills in 2006 after spending the winter of 2006 as the quarterbacks coach/pass coordinator for the University at Buffalo. He also volunteered with the Bills in 2005 as an offensive quality control coach after spending the 2005 NFL Europe season as the Frankfurt Galaxy’s quarterbacks coach where he was responsible for the offensive play-calling. After his retirement from the NFL in 2003, he spent two seasons as the color analyst for the Buffalo Bills Radio Network.

Van Pelt was originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the eighth round of the 1993 NFL Draft and later signed with Buffalo as a free agent in 1995. He spent his entire career as a member of the Bills and played in 31 games with 11 starts while amassing 2,985 yards passing and 16 touchdowns.

A four-year starter at the University of Pittsburgh, Van Pelt holds school records for most career passing yards (11,267), career completions (867) and career attempts (1,503). He became only the fifth player to throw for 2,000 yards in four consecutive seasons.

Van Pelt and his wife Brooke have two daughters, Payton Dale and Katherine Paige, and one son, Jack MacGregor.

new update - see how things change...

The Kansas City Chiefs are talking to Brian Daboll about their vacant offensive-coordinator position, according to a league source.

The Chiefs have also looked at Jim Zorn as an in-house candidate and have spoken to former Raiders coordinator Al Saunders, who has worked previously in Kansas City.

Daboll, most recently Miami's offensive coordinator, has a history with general manager Scott Pioli and several executives expect him to be a top candidate for the job.

At this point Haley was just a courtesy interview, and a way to help get his name out there for other teams to consider. I would be highly surprised if he is even a viable candidate anymore.

Here are some rumors and I want to know what you guys think.

Giants QB coach Mike Sullivan-he's in the Super Bowl so they wouldn't announce his name or get permission until after.
Rip Scherer-Mike tomlin was on his staff when mike started coaching. Currently QB coach Colorado.
Alex Van Pelt- Mike Tomlin ask around the NFL about him. Former Bills OC & Tampa QB coach.
* Hue Jackson- He knows this division, Worked for Cincy & Baltimore,Washington he had a strong running game,Oakland He improved JAson Campbell.(Wexell got a text and said stay away from him)
Pete Carmichael New Orleans OC it would be a LAteral Move. ( unlikely)
Jm Zorn- not a rumor for Steelers I'm just wondering about him

Rumor I read is possibly Giants QB coach Mike Sullivan. Giants have a 2 headed running game and solid passing game. Plus,ELI takes his shots down field. Might be a good OC but for now its a rumor.

Arizona's Take on Haley

#1
Don't get it twisted here. In 2005 and 2006, Kurt Warner appeared to be at the end of his rope. It was only when Todd Haley took over the OC in 2007 that Warner started flourishing again. The team had Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald in 2006, but couldn’t translate their talent into potent offensive drives. In 2008, Arizona RB’s ran the ball well in the playoffs, most notably giving Edgerrin James one last hurrah as he showed some signs of life where none had been thought to exist.


#2
why Todd Haley would be an excellent candidate for the Arizona Cardinals to consider as their offensive coordinator. Among those reasons were that he works well with young players to develop them, he brings ingenuity to his offensive playcalling and the plays he does call are executed with precision by the players involved.

#3
Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and any other quarterback on the Cardinals roster would highly benefit from Haley's knowledge and the manner in which he runs the offense.
