Steelers' Todd Haley says he's not thinking about Cardinals' head coaching job

With speculation about Ken Whisenhunt's future in Arizona, Steelers' offensive coordinator Todd Haley said he's not interested in leaving Pittsburgh.

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

As rumors begin swirling in regards to Ken Whisenhunt's future as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, Todd Haley's name has popped up as a person the franchise would be interested in bringing back to the desert.

But, from a report by Mark Kaboly of the Tribune-Review on Thursday, Haley has no designs on leaving his current role as offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers anytime soon, squashing any notion that he'd entertain the idea of returning to the Cardinals.

Here's Haley, from the report:

"Really it isn't anything I am thinking about," Haley said about being a candidate for other head coaching jobs. "I've said a bunch of times and even when I came in and sat down with Mike (Tomlin) earlier on, this is where I want to be."

Haley served as the Cardinals' offensive coordinator for two seasons, which included the run that saw Arizona go all the way to Super Bowl XLIII before falling to the Steelers. From there, Haley was a head coach with the Kansas City Chiefs for a spell before getting fired and being brought on as the replacement to Bruce Arians, Pittsburgh's former offensive coordinator.
