Report: Haley close to rejoining Cardinals

On Friday, there was word that Todd Haley was expected to speak with the Cardinals about a return to their coaching staff.

The conversation must have gone well because now there’s a report that he’s on the verge of a second go-round in the desert. Jason La Canfora of NFL.com reports that Haley is close to officially rejoining the Cardinals and that a contract might be done within the week. Haley was the offensive coordinator for Arizona in 2007 and 2008 before getting hired as the Chiefs’ head coach.

If Haley returns, the Cardinals will have to shuffle their staff a bit to accommodate his arrival. Mike Miller was the offensive coordinator in 2011, but could move back to his role as a passing game assistant. He held that role under Haley so it could work out without ruffling too many feathers or Miller could depart to find a job somewhere else.

While the Cardinals offense hasn’t been as successful since Haley left, it is worth noting that they were fine for a year without him. It was Kurt Warner’s departure that signaled a major drop in production for Arizona and Haley will have to do a lot of work with the current quarterbacks to get things close to the 2008 level upon his expected return to the fold.

    Cool. Now he can start yelling at Kevin Kolb instead of Matt Cassel.

    I’ve wanted to karate chop Jerome Boger myself after some of his calls.

    Looks like the NFC West will actually be one of the stronger divisions over the next couple years. The Niners will unlikely repeat their 13 win season, but looks like Seattle and AZ are on their way up and even the Rams should be vastly improved if the stay healthy and hot on their high draft picks.

    Kolb and Warner do have some similarities, it might work, who knows.
