From first to worst, former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator, Todd Haley, is headed to the Cleveland Browns.
No one wanted this. Todd Haley upset a lot of people during his time in Pittsburgh, but no one wanted this. Maybe a job in the NFC, or call it a career and walk away known as a coordinator who had great ideas and terrible relationships. But no one wanted this.
Instead, Haley is staying in the AFC North, to the worst team in it. According to reports, Haley is set to join the Cleveland Browns as their new offensive coordinator.
Maybe now the 0-16 Browns can win a game in 2017. Without any reliable offensive assets, the possibility of Joe Thomas retiring, and, let’s be real, not much hope of turning this team around next season, chances are Haley just joined the biggest disappointment of his career.
Good news is that Hue Jackson will give Haley play calling duties. You never know, he could decide to run some quarterback sneaks now that his quarterback isn’t 35-years-old.
This means nothing besides getting to see Haley twice a year from now until the Browns decide to stop playing football. His impact isn’t going to turn this team around, and with the amount of holes in Cleveland, he’s not going to add much of anything for the time being.
Honestly, it’s nice to see Haley get another job. He wasn’t a favorite of anyone’s in Pittsburgh, but he’s talented enough to continue working in the NFL. But Cleveland isn’t where anyone wanted to see him.
He could see something none of us do in the offense. Or maybe he’s so excited for this year’s draft that he wanted two top ten draft picks. Either way, we hope him nothing but terrible success and to get out of Cleveland as fast as possible and go get a real job before his career’s over.
