Report: Todd Haley injured hip in New Year’s Eve altercation outside a bar

The Steelers said today that offensive coordinator Todd Haley will be able to coach in next weekend’s game despite suffering an injury in a fall. They did not provide any details about the fall, perhaps because they didn’t want it known that he had a run-in with someone who shoved him at a bar.

But that’s what happened, according to NFL Network: Haley was shoved outside a bar near Heinz Field on New Year’s Eve after the Steelers beat the Browns.

The report says Haley suffered a hip injury and may need to coach next weekend’s game from the booth, instead of the sideline.

This isn’t the first time an incident with Haley at a bar has made the news. In 2013, Haley was accused of having words with patrons at a bar that included Haley asking a man, “Why do you have to be so gay?” Haley confirmed that he had been at the bar and written “Chiefs suck” on a napkin he autographed, but he denied having anything other than jovial interactions with the other patrons.

Police have reportedly investigated the shoving incident but no arrests have been made.

  1. he’s tripping like your dummy for a head coach. it won’t matter when new england lays the smackdown on their candy azzes.

  2. Haley has always been an angry, narcissistic idiot.He is an offensive coordinator of the Steelers & gets in a bar fight like he is 18 and drinking for the 1st time.

  3. And this is the Steelers coaching staff? In New England we had knowledge the Steelers” talent ( probably superior to ours ), But sometimes question their maturity and mental toughness. Here we have yet another answer to those questions.

  4. Is it bad that my first thought was that it was probably something exactly like this?

    Not a good look for a guy that is (was) being rumored to maybe get another shot at HC somewhere.

    Who’s in who’s head exactly lol

  6. Haley is an idiot who calls predictable & crappy plays. But hey, a Patriot player or coach would NEVER get in trouble (like, uh, Aaron Hernandez?)

    Its because have this tagged to the Pats feed. I dont know why because I agree the Steelers are not worth NE time to worry about.

  8. This is nothing new or surprising. Ask Scott Pioli who spent
    20 percent of his time putting out fires caused by Haley and his
    wife. The truth hurts.

  9. My 86 year old grandmother got a new walker for Christmas. It has a little fold down table and a cup holder. Get Haley one of those, he can stand on the sideline and have his playbook right there.

    Of course not, he shouldn’t. Why would you expect Goodell to do anything? There is no NFL rule against getting your ass kicked in a bar.

    Much like a team who had evidence to either convict or get cleared by said accusations? I still wanna know what were on the tapes that Goodell destroyed for you

  14. Haley gets in a fight at a bar. Porter gets in a fight at bar. We all know what Ben did in a bar bathroom. What’s up with all yinz [sic] bad behavior in bars?

    Convict? You do know the NFL is not a criminal court? Thats why they can punsih teams and players without evidence.

  16. Typical Pittsburgh distraction proving they are their own toughest opponent .Would be interesting to see what the Steelers could accomplish with players and coaches who actually cared about the team instead of themselves .

    Where was Roethlisberger?”

    At home with his wife and two small kids. You must hate that he is a family man. Pretty sure you are not.

  19. Steeler class!!!!

    Did Tomlin show up and trip the assailant?

    Did the Steelers’ fixer get involved and keep Haley out of jail?

    Did Joey Porter come off the sidelines to trash talk?

  20. > Belichick paid a goon via bitcoin to commit the act. Untraceable.

    Belichick wouldn’t know or even care what bitcoin is. He’d probably call it bitface.

    Right. The guy is out celebrating the new year, gets assaulted and shoved to the ground –
    breaks his hip, but somehow you see a conspiracy by Goodell to protect the Steelers.

    Love your lunatic logic, and the round about way you found to blame the victim.
    Patriots* privileged trolls spewing hate on every single article, yet comments of
    other posters get moderated out. SMH

  23. Damn. I thought Western Pennsylvania was safe after Jeff Reed left town.

    And Pats fans have no business commenting. That new linebacker of theirs is a violent lunatic.

    Wow lmao. The best comment of the day.

  26. Never saw so many judgmental schmucks in one place. If Haley had been the GM/coach in KC the Chiefs would have won a Super Bowl by no. Pioli was a dump.

  27. There are 63 comments at the time I posted this. I read the first 12-15. I felt like I was in junior high school.

  28. This is the coaching equivalent to Tunsil’s gas mask bong video hitting the internet hours before the draft. There are a ton of teams looking for a HC right now. Good job, Haley.

    It gets tougher when you reach 9th grade. Good luck man.

  30. In true Steeler fashion, when he was pushed everyone thought he was down and out, but he got right back up and called a game-winning TD play. 13-3, and better than the patsies, you all know it, hence the worry showing in your posts.

    You are generous in your assessment, after seeing the name calling I fully expected an “I’m rubber, you’re glue” comment.

  32. Steelers offense finally got Haley to coach from the booth. If Todd (and he really does look like a Todd… or a Toby) weren’t so stubborn they wouldn’t have had to resort to this.

    Yes, but he also proved this week that he can do his job and thats what matters if you are more focused on winning football games than indulging personal baggage.

    See you guys next year.

  35. “cbass59 says: January 2, 2018 at 8:17 pm James Harrison once said NE owes him a ring for stealing play calls and called the NE organization a bunch of cheaters.”

    Cite that quote for me, please. I can’t find it. If you can’t, you made it up and threw it out there. If you can, my apologies.

  36. Haley has always had some kind of personality issue; be it anger or immaturity or whatever. I recall being very skeptical when he was hired and when he’s gone I don’t think anyone will shed any tears. That being said; I think the evidence shows him to be a good coordinator overall. However, this is the kind of stuff that will eventually have him moving on to the next job. Despite critics talking about how terrible he is (like they did with Bruce Arians before him) the Steeler offense has looked pretty good since he’s been on the job. You could also make the case that his offense has carried the Steelers D for a couple seasons before this present one.

  37. What a dumpster fire of an organization. Haley should be suspended, but nothing will happen. The Rooney’s just send someone to visit Roger in the middle of the night to talk it over, just like when Trip was hitting his 2-step on the field during Jacoby’s return.

  38. He’s to old to drink, the music is too loud, and should never be accessible to the fans. It’s also been told that he was talking and laughing loudly, in a bar of all places!! This maniac must be stopped! If he can’t celebrate a 13-3 season by drinking a glass of milk and write a love letter to ol’ Bill he has no place in football. Let’s Go Pat’s! Win the Super Bowl and get probation reinstated in 2018!

    Speaking of destroyed evidence, when you find the tapes see if the PSI records are there as well.

    So you think a 50 yo that is still getting in bar fights is mature enough to handle GM duties? You’re just as nutty as he is.

    Not sure which team ‘they’ is but no matter who you are right since they all do it. (Its legal so it always escapes me why anyone would expect otherwise)

    When did this happen? Cuz, I keep rewinding that game from a few weeks ago and it still shows Big Ben throwing a pick in the endzone and them losing…oh, and if you’re looking forward to an AFC title game rematch with the Pats, I wouldn’t exactly be overlooking a Jags team that dropped the People’s Elbow on you earlier this year.
