Steelers interview ex-Chiefs coach Haley to be O-coordinator

The Pittsburgh Steelers have interviewed former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley for the team's vacant offensive coordinator position.

Haley, fired by the Chiefs in December, met with Steelers coach Mike Tomlin on Tuesday.

The Steelers need to replace Bruce Arians, who was not retained after the season. Arians was hired to the same position by the Indianapolis Colts on Monday. Pittsburgh finished 12th in the NFL in yards in 2011 but just 21st in points scored.

NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin Steelershad been making calls around the league and to inquire about Haley, who had also been in discussions to return to the Arizona Cardinals

Haley spent 10 seasons as an assistant before being hired by Kansas City. He was offensive coordinator for Arizona in 2007 and 2008, helping lead the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance.

The 45-year-old Haley went 19-26 in two-plus seasons with the Chiefs, leading them to the 2010 AFC West title.
