All (Todd) Haley to the Chiefs


What should really come as no suprise to anyone, the Kansas City Chiefs and Todd Haley have agreed in pricipal for him to be their next Head Coach. The two sides are reported to be working on finalizing terms of a contract.

Todd Haley who comes over from the Arizona Cardinals reunites with former co-worker and now Chiefs GM Scott Pioli. The two worked together with the New York Jets from 1997-1999. Everyone knows that Pioli followed Bill Belichick to New England while Haley went on to coach wide receivers for the Bears and the Cowboys before joining the Cardinals last year.

Haley was scheduled to arrive in Honolulu for the Pro Bowl Thursday as a guest of Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald, but canceled at the last moment because of the Kansas City job, according to

It will be interesting now to see if the Chiefs will persue free agent quarterback Kurt Warner, especially with Matt Cassel getting the franchise tag put on him by the New England Patriots.
