Todd Haley still has not been paid the remainder of his contract after being fired by the Chiefs a year ago, according to Jay Glazer. That matter is in arbitration, as the Chiefs are apparently taking the position that Todd Haley was fired for cause. You might recall that things got ugly last year when rumors that Haley was on the way out emerged very early in the season from Michael Lombardi. After that, Haley went Office Space on us, growing out a full beard and generally looking like a homeless man on the sideline until Pioli fired him in early December.
To say that this was one of the more contentious separations would be putting it mildly. Well, now Haley gets to serve as offensive coordinator against his former team, and they come in to the game in a heavy favorite’s role. I look for no mercy here, and the only other sub-plot to watch for is whether the Chiefs can actually lead this game at any point thanks to a random bounce or getting the opening kickoff and getting a field goal.
