The Steelers’ website reports that the team interviewed former Kansas City head coach Todd Haley for the offensive coordinator job. He was fired by the Chiefs last month. It has been reported that the team fired Haley for cause and is refusing to pay him the final year of his contract. The team declined comment on the report last week.
Haley has also talked to the Jets and Cardinals about a position. Haley would likely prefer the Steelers’ job. He is from Pittsburgh, and his father, Dick, was a legendary personnel man for the Steelers.
In other Kansas City news, the Chicago Sun-Times reports the Chiefs denied the Bears permission to talk to quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn about the same position. That is an indication Zorn will remain on the Chiefs’ staff.
