    I want Haley but he doesn't seem fit into what Mr. Rooney just mandated. Now.. I don't know if Haley was calling his plays based on his personnel in Arizona or not.
    But if that be the case then maybe he can adjust his play calling to the personnel we have in Pittsburgh.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I understand what you're saying but Harbaugh's a bad example. I only ever see him whining to the officials.

    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.

    Good system, worked well with Kurt Warner and since he is from the "Parcells" coaching tree, he won't take any of Ben's crap - if there is any.

    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.

    K Train, What are your thoughts on Hue Jackson as an OC or QB coach? Fitchner can hold down the fort for Kirby at RB coach until he returns.

    Art Rooney wants a solid running game so give him a heavy dose of Redman & Clay and have Baron Batch or draft pick Isaiah Pead or Chris Rane as 3rd down backs.

    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.
