Chiefs coach Todd Haley had a bit of a reputation of a tough head coach to work with, even before Charlie Weis departed the team after only one season.
An offensive-minded coach, Haley will be starting his third season in Kansas City with his third offensive coordinator. It appears Haley will do the play-calling this time after Bill Muir was promoted to the OC job.
Apppearing on PFT Live Tuesday, Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli talked about the perceptions of head coaches’ reputations, and how they are usually inaccurate. He mentioned how a culture change within an organization is rarely easy.
We think even Haley would admit that he’s learned a lot on the job and would have handled some things differently over the last two years. With that said, the Chiefs organization is undoubtedly in better shape now than in 2009. At least some credit has to go to Pioli’s choice for head coach.
