Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley apparently missed some time after sustaining an injury in a fall, and now we have some more context about said fall:
Before I was privy to this information, I had opined that Haley would be a good choice for the Bears’ coaching vacancy. I think on football merits he would be a good choice for any vacancy. He revitalized Kurt Warner’s career in Arizona, won a division in Kansas City with Matt Cassel as the starter before flaming out with Scott Pioli, and despite a rocky relationship with Ben Roethlisberger Haley’s presence there has been beneficial for his performance.
Nevertheless, he is certainly a hot head and NFL franchises are risk averse with his personality type unless the coach is such a slam dunk hire that the flaws can be ignored.
UPDATE: A Pittsburgh Police Dept. spokesperson disputed the NFL Media report to Deadspin:
It was not Todd Haley, but his wife Christine Haley.
Detail officers were summoned to Tequila Cowboy restaurant on North Shore Drive for a minor scuffle involving Haley’s wife shortly after midnight, January 1, 2017.
The scuffle was quickly ended. Todd Haley was not involved nor injured.
Todd and Christine Haley were escorted out.
No injuries. No charges.
