Pittsburgh Steelers Hire Todd Haley as OC: Why the Decision Makes Sense

The Pittsburgh Steelers have hired Todd Haley as their new offensive coordinator. 

Haley's background with successful offenses brings the promise of a bright future for a unit that has plenty of room for improvement.

However, many fans question the decision to bring Haley onto the staff, ranging from Ben's expressed comfort with predecessor Bruce Arians to Haley's popularly recognized fiery personality.

The only certainty is that some level of change will occur over the coming months, and the new dynamics offered by Haley will make for an interesting 2012 season. 

While many are hesitant to ascribe the personnel decision to good wisdom, it is simply unrealistic to think that the offense will undergo any radical transformation with Haley.  Instead, the focus will be on offensive improvement and "tweaking," a buzzword that caused a great deal of commotion in the Steel City already this offseason.

Art Rooney II indicated his desire for Ben Roethlisberger (and, in turn, the offense) to "tweak" their style of play. Surely, for this reason among others, a change was made.

Here are reasons that Steelers fans can be optimistic about the hiring of Todd Haley.
