Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley talked with Alex Marvez and Jim Miller on Sirius NFL Radio Tuesday and had a couple of interesting things to say about the offensive coordinator position. No, Haley didn't announce the new offensive coordinator but did say it won't be 2009 all over again with him holding both roles.
"The odds of that happening are very limited," Haley said. "I've been doing a lot of work on that since the season ended and feel good about the direction we're going. I'm not ready to disclose any of that, but we're at a different place than we were at in Year One when I had to make some tough changes coming out of training camp that really put us in a difficult spot."
There are a few things I took out of this.
First, Haley won't be your next offensive coordinator, obviously. He left the door open for that possibility at his season-ending press conference but it doesn't look like that'll be happening.
Second, he's done a lot of work on this over the offseason. In case you were wondering if he, um, forgot about hiring an offensive coordinator, he didn't.
Third, I wonder if his words "I'm not ready to disclose that any of that" means he has someone and he's simply not ready to announce it, or if he's not ready to disclose anything because he doesn't have his man and there's nothing to disclose. Reading too much into it? That's possible as well.
Fourth, he said the differences in the current situation and 2009 is "apples and oranges" because the foundation has been laid. That means the two situations can't be compared.
So I'm not really sure what to make of this.
