Ben Roethlisberger Back From Hawaii & At Steelers Facility Today

The Pittsburgh Steelers are scheduled to hold a noon eastern press conference today to officially introduce Todd Haley as the new offensive coordinator and Rob Rossi reports via Twitter that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been seen this morning at the Steelers facility, as he is now back from his trip to Hawaii where he played in the Pro Bowl. Roethlisberger did not return immediately after the game as he and his wife reportedly spent some extra time there as a delayed honeymoon.

One would think that Roethlisberger has already met with Haley as well as with head coach Mike Tomlin and team president Art Rooney II as well since he got back in town. Roethlisberger stated in an interview leading up to the Pro Bowl that he wanted to meet with Rooney II to discuss the direction that the Steelers offense would take after it was announced that Bruce Arians would not return in 2012. We should get a few of those answers hopefully today when Haley takes questions from the local media and I will have a full recap of the press conference after Haley speaks.

    I think how Haley responds to the interviews will set the tone for how I think of him for the rest of the offseason. Hopefully he doesn’t come across as too ego-driven – not that you would expect to see that in an interview at least.

  • Watched Haley’s press conference on As Haley was walking out the door at the end, Tomlin had a giant smile on his face, like a kid at Christmas time. I think it’s safe to say that Mike is excited about this hire.

    I’m ok with it, as long as everyone is on the same page when it comes to the Steelers offense and it’s new coordinator! Steeler Fan Mark
