The Lounge>Todd Haley to be the OC of a high school team
BigRedChief 10:36 PM 02-13-2020
Down in Sarasota Florida. Couldn’t happen to a better example of an asshole on how far you can fall when you piss off everyone around you.

Haley, who has a home in the Sarasota area, was the Kansas City Chiefs head coach from 2009-2011, briefly the Browns offensive coordinator and worked for the Bears, Cowboys and Steelers

The Riverview Rams wasted little time finding a replacement for Jared Clark.

And they got a former NFL head coach to do it.

Todd Haley, who served as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs from 2009 through 2011, will take over as the Rams offensive coordinator, a position held by Clark before he was hired recently as head coach at Cardinal Mooney High.

The 52-year-old Haley last served as the offensive coordinator in 2018 for the Cleveland Browns. But he was fired after a Week 8 loss to his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Haley, who has a home in the area and whose daughter attends Out-of-Door Academy, was introduced to Rams head coach Josh Smithers through former Ram TJ Nutter.

“We were talking and he brought him up and I asked him, ‘You think he’d watch some film?’ ” Smithers said. “So he came over to Riverview late in the season and we watched some film.

“At that point we do what we do. We’re not going to change anything.”

After the season, when Clark’s name became linked to the Mooney job, Smithers reached out to Nutter to gauge Haley’s interest in becoming the Rams offensive coordinator.

“I said, ‘Hey, what do you think?’ And he said, ‘I don’t know, give it a shot.’ Once I knew Jared had the job I just reached out to him, ‘Would you like to coach still?’ ”

Haley took some time to discuss the offer with his family before telling Smithers he’d take the job.

“We’re obviously excited that he wanted to join the staff and hoping we can learn a lot of football from him,” Smithers said.

Haley’s father, Dick Haley, was an NFL cornerback for six years and later served as director of player personnel for the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.

As a youth, Haley was a ball boy for the Steelers and attended Steeler training camps with his dad. He went on to attend the University of Florida and University of Miami and graduated from the University of North Florida in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in communication.

His first job in coaching was in 1995 as an assistant with the Jets in their scouting department. He then became the Jets wide receivers coach, a job Haley later held with the Bears and Cowboys before becoming offensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals in 2007.

Haley has never coached at the high school level. Smithers said he discussed this with him.

“We talked about the high school game being different than the pro game,” he said. “And he was all fired up, just to get out there and coach football again. He understands these are high school kids who go to school all day and you get them for a couple of hours versus people who do it for a job.

“He told me he’s excited just to teach quarterbacks how to read coverages and receivers how to run better routes.

“And I think that’s where he’s going to be able to excel. His ability to understand defensive coverages and have an answer for everything.”

Smithers also pointed out that Haley, who was unavailable for comment, will be part of a program that has a winning culture already established.

“I told him what we’ve done here at Riverview the last five years, it works and we’ve had success with it,” he said. “I said obviously if there are certain route concepts or things that you just have to have in your arsenal, then you have the freedom but we’re not going to all of a sudden create a new offense.

“We’re going to be spread and up tempo. If he can make us go even faster, than will be even better.

“He’s all in.”

But Smithers realizes any coach, even one with NFL pedigree, can only do so much.

“At the end of the day, our kids will be on the field competing and it doesn’t really matter who’s calling it. If we don’t execute, it’s not going to matter.”

he said Cassell was the real deal. A star QB. No need to draft a QB. We would win a SB with Matt Cassell at QB.

He was so insecure that he hired a shitty coaching staff or it was the best he could find willing to work with him.

From Wikipedia
For his first coaching staff, Haley hired Joel Collier, Gary Gibbs, Steve Hoffman, Bill Muir, Clancy Pendergast, Pat Perles, and Dedric Ward to unspecified positions on the Chiefs' 2009 coaching staff and retained Bob Bicknell, Joe D’Alessandris, Chan Gailey, Tim Krumrie, Brent Salazar, and Cedric Smith from Herm Edwards' staff.

And he fired Chan Gailey within a few games

You're a dumbass for even posting this.

Haley wanted to sign Matt Hasselbeck in 2011 to give Cassel competition and Pioli wouldn't do it and signed Tyler Palko as "competition".

That was the biggest source of friction between Haley and Pioli. Haley KNEW Cassel was a fraud. And voiced that opinion to Pioli. LOUDLY.

name calling is the last resort of a limited mind. :-)

bringing your hot takes out of DC to the lounge isn’t going to make Haley a good NFL Coach.

Making shit up and telling outright lies is what people do when they don't know what the **** they're talking about.

You've got me confused with someone else, because I actually remember what happened. Unlike you, who goes from making shit up to having zero contextual understanding of why Haley hired a shitty first staff in the middle of ****ing February...

If you don't want people to call you a dumbshit, then quit being a ****ing dumbshit.

I agree it wasn’t all Haley’s fault, Pioli deserves the scourge too. But, Haley’s inability to get along with his players. His hard headed my way or the highway approach to players when he had never won anything was a huge mistake, his alone mistake.

It’s just my opinion that Haley sucked as an NFL coach. His time as the Chiefs head coach was a disaster. We as fans suffered under his rein.

Pretty much the same except when I drove all the way to Lambaeu and he played Tyler Palko the entire preseason game out of spite to Pioli. I was pretty pissed.

Yeah, but he was a fucking fuckknuckle. Think about the staff we have now and how they would handle it. You think Reid would grow a fucking hobo beard and start Palko?
How the fuck did you not see that gif before?


Mind = Blown

Todd Haley would let GBlowfish know that his team is number one no matter what the record is.
