Cardinals ask to interview Steelers' Todd Haley, according to report

Todd Haley's tenure as offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers could be a short one, as the Arizona Cardinals might want to bring back their former assistant coach for their open head coaching gig.

The Arizona Cardinals have requested permission to interview Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley, according to Mike Jurecki of Arizona radio station XTRA 910.

Haley would provide a familiar face for the Cardinals, who are looking to find a head coach just days after firing Ken Whisenhunt.

The 45-year-old served as offensive coordinator for the Cardinals under Whisenhunt for two seasons, with his offense leading the team to a Super Bowl appearance against Pittsburgh after the 2008 season. That year, Arizona had the fourth-best offense in the league, and scored 30 points or more in all of the team's playoff games before the Super Bowl.

Haley left after that season to take the head coaching job with Kansas City, before being fired last season, the came to Pittsburgh before this year. Both of his stops since Arizona have been less successful, with the Chiefs ousting him less than a year after they went 10-6 and made the playoffs, and with Pittsburgh fans displeased with an offense that often sputtered as the team went 8-8.
