Chiefs head coach Todd Haley will be moving into the final year of his contract next year, and while general manager Scott Pioli wouldn’t say whether the team would extend his contract, his comments seemed to indicate they would. Pioli praised Haley on Monday in an interview with The Kansas City Star.
“I think he’s doing a good job of growing into the job,” Pioli said. “He’s adjusted well to changes in personnel, changes in roster. He’s adjusted well to staff changes. This team has continued to evolve and continued to develop. Players have developed well. That’s Todd and the whole coaching staff.”
Echoing comments made recently by Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, Pioli also said he has a good relationship with Haley. “I think it’s a good working relationship. I really do,” Pioli said. “We’re both focused on the same thing, which is winning football games.”
