12:48 PM ET 01.03 | As the Arizona Cardinals continue their search for a new head coach, the team has reportedly requested permission to interview Pittsburgh Steelers'offensive coordinator Todd Haley, according to Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 in Phoenix. A return to Arizona would be a homecoming of sorts for the 45-year-old Haley. He served as the team's offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008. Haley led Arizona's offense to a franchise-record in scoring (427 points), which helped them win the NFC West championship and ended with the franchise's first Super Bowl appearance.

I hope Arizona hires him & gets him out of Pittsburgh.

It seems Haley burns his bridges, I don't see him going back to the Cards.

He was HC in KC. Was he ever with the Cards?

He was their OC when your heroes beat them in the Super Bowl.

Norv as OC in the Burgh?

Why do they keep giving guys HC jobs who have failed as HCs?

January 3, 2013  02:39 PM ET

Maybe Wisenhunt back as OC in Pittsburgh

January 3, 2013  03:03 PM ET

It might make sense, do you think he could get Kurt out of retirement?

Freaking merry-go-round. Give Horton a chance.

Great question for the new edition of the Wonderlic test.

Unfortunately, when it comes down to a $100 million quarterback and a, what?, $2-3 million coach... the team's gonna have to give a lot of weight to Big Ben's opinion. He just never clicked with Haley, personally or professionally. Probably time to try someone else.

James Daniel has done a pretty awesome job developing the guys he's responsible for, and he spent a few years working under the Wiz. Maybe just give him a shot and find someone else to coach TEs.

Please anybody give Haley a job anywhere but the Burgh!!

When you look back at his job as offense coordinator in 2007 and 08 his success started with the quarterback for the Cardinals. If it was not for Warner I don't think Haley gets the K.C. job and if I remember correctly I saw a game or two where Haley and Warner did not agree as such the case in Pittsburgh this past season with big Ben. I just think that Haley is getting a little too much credit for what happened in 2007 and 08. Then again KC didn't have a bad year in 2010 so who knows ....
