Chiefs Could Indirectly Get Todd Haley Another Job – Arrowhead Addict – A Kansas City Chiefs Fan Site – News, Blogs, Opinion and more

The Kansas City Chiefs fired former head coach Todd Haley in the middle of the 2011 season but not the team could indirectly be responsible for helping Haley get another head coaching gig.
After leaving the Chiefs, Haley was hired to be the offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers but now the Arizona Cardinals, the team left to come to the Chiefs, is requesting permission to interview Haley to be their head coach.

And with it now murky as to whether Andy Reid ever makes it out to AZ; Cards preparing to request permission to interview Todd Haley…

The Cardinals were reportedly very interested in Andy Reid, however the Chiefs intercepted Reid yesterday in Philly. The interview lasted nine hours and the most recent reports suggest Reid is close to a deal with KC. As such, Reid has pushed back his meeting with the Cards.
Now the Cards are looking at other options, which clearly includes Haley.
It would be pretty funny if the Chiefs ended up inadvertently helping Haley get another shot as a head coach. We shall see.

Just saw a tweet from Chris Mortensen that both he and Adam Schefter have a source that says the Chiefs are on the verge of a deal with Andy Reid.…56139977654272

Nice to see an offensive mind in there that has developed some QBs before. Can’t really complain. I just hope he can take control of that locker room. IMO it seems like there is a real lack of leadership.

:fishing: What about Bridgewater later in the draft? I haven’t thought about him since early last year.

Good college resume and at the moment he’s kickin the crap outta Florida’s top defense.

Also saw his interview w/ him and his mother , both seem like down to earth type people.

What say you ? its a thought.

I’ve always been led to believe by reading various NFL pro analyst commentaries & reviews, (Cowher, others) that Clark Hunt has always played a major role with important decisions related to the Chiefs, rather never gave Pioli "full control". One incident proving this is when Jeff Fisher flew to Dallas last year reportedly for a coaching interview. The meeting was in Dallas with Clark Hunt & Scott Pioli present, not in KC with Pioli only.

In the one on one interview recently did with Clark Hunt…Clark confirms that he has always been involved with Pioli & football operations, which would include coaching hires, draft choices, & so on. The only real change Clark is making, is that from this point forward, the HC will report to him and not the GM, whether it remain Pioli or someone else. Clark also states clearly in this interview, that he could retain Pioli, as well as not, based upon many factors.

The entire article can be read following the link below, but here are points I’m referring to above;

NFL: "When you say the coach and GM will report to you, does that mean you’ll be taking a more hands-on role in football?"

Clark: "I think it’ll be a different role. I do spend a lot of time already on the football side. Most of that interaction in the past has been with the GM, as opposed to the head coach. On a going-forward basis, I anticipate spending a lot of time with both."

NFL: "Do you feel like Scott Pioli can still be the right man to right the ship here?"

Clark: "I have not ruled that out. We’re still evaluating that. But the priority here over the next few weeks is going to be the head coach."

this is turning into a joke. what is clark thinking. at first midway through the season pioli was assumed to be getting an extension. then clark after firing crennell is supposedly evaluating the whole football operations side of the team. and we all asumed pioli was on his way out(wishfull thinking). now espn reports andy reid did his interview with MULTIPLE people involved including pioli. i just dont see any good coming out of playing pioli like a puppet. like or dislike pioli’s moves this is all starting to make clark look like an incompetant idiot.
