Coaching Tree



New York Jets

In 1995 Haley was hired on as an assistant in the scouting department for the New York Jets where he worked for two seasons alongside his father, Dick Haley. During his time assisting with scouting he became more invested in the coaching world and finally caught his first real break.

In 1997 Haley was hired on full time by the Jets as an offensive assistant/quality control coach where he would remain through the 1998 season by Head Coach Bill Parcells. After that he went on to become the team’s new wide receivers coach in 1999 and helped Keyshawn Johnson make his second Pro Bowl appearance. The team struggled for an 8-8 during his first season as a wide receivers coach due in part to quarterback Vinny Testaverde and running back Leon Johnson both sustaining season long injuries during their opening game. The 2000 season was better at 9-7, but the team still missed the playoffs.

During his time with the Jets, Haley would come in contact with many people who were influential to his career. He worked with Bill Parcells and Running Backs coach Maurice Carthon who helped bring him in to coach the Dallas Cowboys later in his career. He also met Scott Pioli who was the Director of Pro Personnel and would eventually hire him for his first ever head coaching job with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Chicago Bears

Following his departure from the Jets he was hired on in 2001 by the Chicago Bears as their wide receivers coach through the 2003 season. During his three seasons with the Bears he worked with Marty Booker, the first Bears Pro Bowl wide receiver since 1971 who also caught eight touchdowns passes during Haley’s first season working with him.

Dallas Cowboys

Beginning in 2004 he worked for the Dallas Cowboys as their wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator after being begged by Offensive Coordinator Maurice Carthon and Head Coach Bill Parcells. During his three season stint with them he worked with quarterback Tony Romo and wide receivers Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn. In 2006 his intensity during games and practices became widely known due to a long confrontation with Owens over his tardiness to practice. The team finished out the season with a 9-7 record in 2006, his last season with the team.

Arizona Cardinals

In 2007 he worked with the Arizona Cardinals as their offensive coordinator, his first time with the position. Carthon was also hired on to the staff as the new running backs coach, reuniting the two after both leaving Dallas. During his second season with the Cardinals, Haley helped them win their first division title since 1975 as well as earning them a spot in Super Bowl XLIII where they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team became the fifth team in the history of the NFL to have three different receivers hit 1,000 yards in the same season and his offense recorded a record 427 points for the franchise and third in the league.

Kansas City Chiefs

Haley was then hired on in 2009 by the Kansas City Chiefs as head coach, his first opportunity with the position, thanks in part to his former colleague Scott Pioli. One of his first orders of business was the hiring of his previous colleague Maurice Carthon as assistant head coach, who was retained with the team after Haley’s departure.

During the 2010 season he managed to lead the team to an AFC West title before being fired the next season for his attitude and the team’s dismal and inconsistent performance. Haley left the team with a 19-27 record overall as during his first stint as head coach.

Pittsburgh Steelers

After leaving the Chiefs, Haley moved on to work as the offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012, where his father used to work as the personnel director. He is the first offensive coordinator to be hired on from outside of the organization in 13 years. During his time with them he has seen a few ups and downs as well as some confrontation with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger due to a huddle/no-huddle argument where Haley wanted to make the calls and Roethlisberger wanting to go his own way. After two season of 8-8, the Steelers won the AFC North in 2014 with a record of 11-5.
