The Arizona Cardinals are interviewing Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley today for the job as their head coach.
Haley, 46, is in Arizona for the interview. He joined the Steelers last year as their coordinator after the team did not renew the contract of Bruce Arians. Haley, an Upper St. Clair native, had been fired as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs near the end of the 2011 season, his third year on the job.
Haley served as offensive coordinator with the Cardinals in 2007 and 2008 and reportedly has a good relationship with Arizona president Michael Bidwill.
The Steelers granted the Cardinals permission last week to talk to Haley. Arizona officials also have interviewed their defensive coordinator, Ray Horton, for the job. Horton is a former Steelers secondary coach.
Coincidentally, the Arizona head coaching job came open when another former Steelers offensive coordinator, Ken Whisenhunt, was fired.
