Reports have surfaced that the Browns have hired former Steelers offensive coordinator, Todd Haley, to become the offensive coordinator of the Browns. Last season, the Browns desperately needed an offensive coordinator to call the plays as Hue Jackson was a disaster.
Haley brings head coaching experience (Kansas City, 2oo9-11) as well as six years with the Steelers, sporting a 61-35 record in that time. He’s a fierce coach that isn’t afraid to yell at his players. The Browns are in dire need of some accountability, so this is perfect.
On the 17th of January, the Steelers and Haley parted ways. Pittsburgh’s season ended with a sour home loss in the AFC Divisional Round to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 45-42.
In the past, Haley has worked with the Cardinals, Cowboys, Bears and Jets in various different roles. He has plenty of experience to bring to Cleveland.
Frankly, it appears that Haley and quarterback Ben Rothlisberger had some disagreements, which ultimately led to his demise. In Cleveland, our quarterbacks will have to respect him due to their own inexperience. It’s going to be Kizer and a rookie unless the Browns sign a veteran in free agency.
Todd Haley would certainly be a great addition to the Browns. Actually, having an offensive coordinator, in general, is a step up.
Against the Browns, Haley and company went 10-2 when with the Steelers.
My only concern with Haley is that his hot-tempered style may give him a lot of frustration going from a winning franchise to the firestorm Browns. We do not have a Big Ben to coach. It’s going to be a lot harder to get back to the winning ways Haley was used to in Pittsburgh.
But, that’s part of the job.
Glad the Browns signed Haley.
