Per the Red Zone and Adam Teicher (although they're really the same source), the Kansas City Chiefs have received permission to interview Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Todd Haley for their vacant head coaching gig.
It was unclear when or where the meeting between Haley and Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli will take place.
Haley, 42, gained prominence this year as the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator. The Cardinals won the AFC West, had one of the league’s highest-scoring offensive teams and advanced to their first Super Bowl, where they were beaten in the final seconds by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Pretty much nothing we don't already know. Todd Haley as the Chiefs' new head coach appears to be a foregone conclusion and some poor guy's going to get his time wasted and intelligence insulted being "the Rooney", since the Chiefs reportedly still haven't met the NFL's hypocritical standard for a token interview.
I'm going to make a bold prediction that someday Leslie Frazier's going to land a head coaching gig in the NFL and I hope that he wins a Super Bowl in an embarassing blowout against one of the teams that dragged him to their city just so they could check a block*. I hope that team's not Kansas City, of course, but then again it appears we never really considered the guy a candidate either so it would probably be karmic justice.
*I vote for the Rams. I hate the Rams. Mainly because every Ram I've ever owned on my fantasy team has stunk as long as I've owned them and improved once I dumped them and also because they've had some of the shadiest owners in the NFL.
