Todd Haley Off to Kansas City

On Friday Todd Haley the former Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator was introduced as the Kansas City Chiefs head coach. Todd Haley was a big part to the Arizona Cardinals run to the Super Bowl as they had the number one offense in the league.

The last head coach the Kansas City Chiefs had was a defensive head coach in Herman Edwards. Before Edwards they had an offensive minded coach in Dick Vermiel. With Vermiel the Chiefs were a good and successful team on offense, but hardly on defense with one of the worst defenses in the league.

Haley said this is an "ideal situation" for him and "a chance to work with someone I have experience with in Scott."

Haley also went on in an interview with Metro Sports to emphasize that he is here to be the head coach not an offensive coach or even an offensive minded coach but to coach the whole team. The Kansas City Chiefs have had there worst year in many years with a 2-14 record, Haley certainly has a tough job in front of him.

Todd Haley has been in the NFL since 1996 as an assistant coach but has no experience as a head coach. Since '96 Haley was an assistant with four different teams. 2004-06 Haley was the Cowboys receivers/passing game coordinator. 2007-08 he was the offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals.

Haley has the experience to run an offense but a defense at the same as well? Only time will tell.
