Haley gains unflattering new rep


08:57 AM ET 01.12 | Todd Haley, with two seasons under his belt, is on to searching for his third offensive coordinator. That's not counting Haley himself, who spent the 2009 regular season as the coordinator. After firing Chan Gailey, his original coordinator, and then losing this year's play-caller, Charlie Weis to the University of Florida, Haley is gaining the reputation of a head coach who is difficult to work for. Haley disagreed with that notion and said it wouldn't hurt him during the job search. "I don't think that," Haley said. "That's not something I've thought about or considered."

Thoughtful Todd...

Pensive Todd...

Two sides of a single picture. Well done, FN.

BTW - Where are all the loud mouth Chief fans that thought they actually belonged in the playoffs? Playing in the west coast divisions nowadays is about the same as the CFL. Except the CFL can pass the ball better...

Oh, there it is.......UMMM, AHHHH, ......Nothing new here!

Another well placed bs article by the interns.

Just go get McDaniels, no change in the playbook and Haley gets to wag his finger in McDaniels face every game... should be interesting.

Coordinators are a dime a dozen.

I'd like to see him sign T.O. Good times!

Gailey didn't leave for the Bills job. He was hired in '08 for Chiefs o-coord job, coached 3 preseason games, was fired. Didn't coach in '09. I guess the Bills thought he'd be fresh and rested to be head coach in '10. Not saying Haley isn't difficult to work with, just think Gailey is crap.

I remember him and Boldin screaming at each other a couple years back when both were with the Cards. Haley seems to have a lot to say, and doesn't know when to keep it shuy.

Exactly ... this guy has had issues everywhere he has coached. Dallas, Az, and now KC. i give it another year and pioli fires him.

Any manager who has turnover in his staff and doesn't ask him/herself, "Why, am I doing something wrong?", is not going to be very successful over time. Talented staff won't work for difficult managers who don't show respect etc.
Scott Pioli will sort this out sooner or later; he's too smart to put up with a screw-up coach for very long.

KC Chief fans better get used to this loony running your team into the ground. He's a moron.

Quote from Haley: "No, I don't consider myself paranoid. Why does everyone want to know that? Stop asking me!"

Do you suppose Haley mouths off to Pioli, too?
