Haley’s father, Dick, was the Pittsburgh Steelers’ longtime player personnel director. Todd was a college student at Florida in 1989, when the Steelers lost their first two games to the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals by a collective 91-10 margin. Pittsburgh rallied to finish 9-7, snuck into the playoffs as a wild card and won a first-round playoff game over the Oilers in Houston before Bubby Brister and friends nearly shocked John Elway and the Denver Broncos on the road.

We would want to make sure there would be support for it.”
