New Chief Steve Breaston: “Coach Haley’s not always a butthole”

Shortly after Steve Breaston agreed to terms with the Chiefs on a five-year contract that reunited him with Kansas City head coach Todd Haley, Breaston gave a radio interview in which he was asked about his relationship with Haley.

Breaston’s short description of what kind of guy Haley is may set the standard for damning with faint praise.

Coach Haley’s not always a butthole,” Breaston said on 810 Sports Radio, via ArrowheadAddict.com.

Haley was the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator during Breaston’s first two NFL seasons, and Breaston had by far his best statistical year in 2008, catching 77 passes for 1,006 yards in Haley’s offense. So Breaston clearly knows he can work well with Haley.

And if Haley were really a complete butthole, Breaston never would have agreed to play for him again. So maybe he’s only 90 percent butthole.
