The Steelers have granted permission to the Arizona Cardinals to interview Todd Haley for their head coaching job.
Haley, who completed his first season as the Steelers offensive coordinator, was Arizona's offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008 before he became head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs from 2009 through most of the 2011 season.
Arizona fired Ken Whisenhunt as head coach on Monday. Whisenhunt was the Steelers offensive coordinator when he landed that job in 2007 and hired Haley as his first offensive coordinator.
Haley, an Upper St. Clair native, is the son of Dick Haley, a former Steelers player and longtime personnel man.
