Tracking Todd Haley

New, comments

Former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley has now been unemployed for well over a month. The Chiefs fired him on Dec. 13 and Haley has been connected to a few jobs since then.

If you're curious what the former head coach has been up to, here's a run down of where we've seen his name mentioned recently?

Arizona Cardinals: The very first Haley rumor connected him to his former team, the Cardinals. Ken Whisenhunt is still the head coach and it was believed that there was some interest on both sides to get something done but Arizona area reporters (like Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic) are now saying that's unlikely to happen. The Cards only opening may be at quarterbacks coach, which would be a step back in Haley's career right now.

New York Jets: Tony Sparano was hired as the offensive coordinator in New York and at one point people thought Haley and Sparano would be a package deal. Haley interviewed with the Jets but New York area reporters (like Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News) have since said that Haley's not expected to join the staff.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Nope, he's not interviewing in Pittsburgh or anything but Bruce Arians, the Steelers offensive coordinator, may not return in 2012. If he doesn't, you have to wonder if Haley would be a candidate. Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (via Arrowheadlines) dropped Haley's name in a column about potential offensive coordinators if Arians is indeed gone.

That's about it right now. The Cards and the Jets are the only two rumors that had some legs while the Steelers thing is just throwing out names at this point.
