This is one of those reports that I will pass on, but I caution you that there has been no confirmation by the Steelers or anyone else that it is indeed true. Mark Carman, from 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City, is reporting via Twitter that he is hearing that former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley has been hired as the new Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator and an official announcement should be coming soon.
Haley, the son of former Steelers Director of Player Personnel Dick Haley, interviewed with the Steelers and head coach Mike Tomlin last Tuesday. It has been the only interview that has been confirmed by the steelers.com since it was announced that former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians would not return in 2012. On Friday, Alby Oxenreiter, Sports Director for WPXI, tweeted that it was his understanding that Haley was the frontrunner for the job. We should likely know soon if Carman is indeed right.
ETA: Chris Mortensen of ESPN is now confirming report of Carman on Twitter.
