Hopefully, this is not just a rumor, because I like Todd Haley an awful lot. Haley, who I first recommended Sunday night (before Big Sexy, BTW), will be the head coach in my upcoming The Blueprint 3. I was already a fan, but that masterful seven-minute game-winning drive he called with Anquan Boldin all in his ear impressed me twice as much as anything Herm Edwards has ever done as a coach. From Red Zone:
NBC Sports analyst Cris Collinsworth expects Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Todd Haley to become the Chiefs’ next head coach.
“I think he’ll be the coach in Kansas City,” Collinsworth told me Tuesday on a teleconference.
“I’m watching what’s happening with all the (new) coaches, and we’ve seen some of the defensive coaches come off the board, and the one guy nobody is talking about that has surprised me, and it’s because (the Cardinals) flew so far under the radar screen, was Haley. He’s not under the radar screen anymore.
Much, much more to come on my man Haley.
