Biography

Todd Haley is in his second season as the Steelers’ offensive coordinator, after being hired on February 7, 2012. Haley, 46, is in his 19th season in the NFL and 17th as a coach.

Todd Haley is in his second season as the Steelers’ offensive coordinator, after being hired on February 7, 2012. Haley, 46, is in his 19th season in the NFL and 17th as a coach.


In his first season as offensive coordinator, the Steelers’ offense finished second in the NFL in time of possession (32:07), fourth in red zone scoring (91.8%) and 10th in third-down efficiency (42%). Ben Roethlisberger had one of his best seasons despite missing three games due to injury. Roethlisberger threw for 3,265 yards, marking the fifth consecutive season that he threw for at least 3,200 yards. He also tied for the third-most passing touchdowns in franchise history, and second-most passing touchdowns of his career (26), while throwing the second-least interceptions of his career (8).


Haley’s offense also aided Maurkice Pouncey and Heath Miller in earning selections to the Pro Bowl. Pouncey was also named to the USA Football All-Fundamentals Team in 2012. In addition to the Pro Bowl, Miller became the first tight end in team history to be named Steelers MVP. Miller led the team with 71 receptions and set career highs in receiving yards (816) and receiving touchdowns (8).


Prior to joining the Steelers, Haley was the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs for the majority of three seasons (2009-11). In his second season as the Chiefs’ head coach, the team completed the greatest single-season turnaround in franchise history, and the 2010 Chiefs reached the postseason for the first time since 2006. Following the club’s highest win total since 2005, Haley was named the 101 AFC Coach of the Year voted on by national media members and was also awarded NFL Alumni Coach of the Year. The Chiefs’ offense led the league in rushing yards, with 2,627 yards on 556 carries, after finishing 11th in rushing in 2009. The Chiefs also posted 27 touchdown passes, tying for the seventh-highest total in franchise history.  


Before becoming head coach of the Chiefs, he served as the Arizona Cardinals’ offensive coordinator for two seasons (2007-08). During his tenure with the Cardinals, the team won the club’s first division title since 1975 and played in Super Bowl XLIII. Under Haley’s guidance, Arizona’s offense was one of the league’s most explosive units. In 2008, Arizona tied for third in the league with a franchise record 427 points, finished fourth in total offense, averaging 365.8 yards per game and finished second in the league in passing offense. The Cardinals also became just the fifth team in NFL history to have three wide receivers eclipse 1,000 yards in the same season.


From 1999 to 2006, Haley spent time as wide receivers coach for the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and New York Jets, helping each team earn a playoff berth. Haley began his NFL career as an assistant in the Jets scouting department in 1995, where he scouted regionally and assisted in player evaluations.


Haley earned a degree in communications from the University of North Florida in 1991. In February of 2010, Haley was recognized with the Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award, the highest award given by the University of North Florida Alumni Association, recognizing those who have made a significant contribution to their profession, community and society. He was a member of the golf squads at the University of Florida and the University of Miami, and participated in the NCAA golf tournament during his time with the Gators.


Haley is the son of Dick Haley, former Director of Player Personnel for the Pittsburgh Steelers (1971-91). As a youth, Haley was a ball boy for the Steelers and attended Steelers training camps with his father. Alongside his father, Haley would watch the Steelers' game and practice film.


Haley was born in Atlanta, Ga., but attended Upper St. Clair High School in Pittsburgh, Pa.  He and his wife, Chrissy, have four daughters, Taylor, Peyton, Kady and Ella, and one son, Richard Todd, Jr.
