Todd Haley Accepts Head Coaching Job

Todd Haley & Ken Whisenhunt

FOXSports.com is reporting that Cardinals Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley has accepted the Chiefs head coaching offer. Details of the contract are now being worked out.

Second-year Cardinals Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley took over play calling duties last year and brought the Cardinals to their first-ever Super Bowl appearance.

Now he will try to turn around the Kansas City Chiefs organization.

Haley relished in the spotlight of the Super Bowl and in turning the Cardinals from pretenders into contenders.

He notes Bill Parcells as his key mentor.

Prior to the Super Bowl, Haley said he was unaware of which teams, if any, were contacting the Cardinals to arrange interviews with him.

"Like I've told everybody else, I love my job here," Haley said. "I love the guy I work for (Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt) and the guys I work with and I love the guys I coach. Like I said, I've got five kids so the last thing I'm thinking about is moving anywhere – I'm just enjoying what's going on right here and the fact we've been able to do something nobody else has been able to do."

Haley is a charged coach who got into tiffs with players during the heat of battle; Kurt Warner was one of them.

Warner's return is also questionable. Warner also sites not wanting to re-locate seven kids as a reason to stay in the desert. He would like to retire with the Cardinals.

Maybe as a coach? We're just saying...
