Haley Takes Over Offense In Kansas City

NFL News - August 31st, 2009 - Written by John

todd haleyIt was just a matter of time before Todd Haley felt the itch. After masterminding the offense during the Arizona Cardinals memorable run to the Super Bowl last season, Todd Haley will be back calling signals for his new team, the Kansas City Chiefs, while also serving as head coach. Haley took over as the signal caller of his new team Monday, relieving Chan Gailey of his duties with the Kansas City Chiefs. Gailey served as offensive coordinator last season after being the head coach for Georgia Tech since 2002. His status with the team will be outlined following practice today.

Haley was named head coach of the Chiefs during the off-season following his time as offensive coordinator with the Cardinals, much in part to the fireworks he created with the Cardinals' offense. 38-year old Kurt Warner threw for 4,583 and three receivers had at least 1,000 yards through the air. Arizona's remarkable run to the Championship was the first in team history and was a Santonio Holmes pinkie toe away from resulting in a trophy. Warner threw for 377 yards in that game, just under his record 414-yard performance with the Rams in 1999.

The news comes at an already unsettling time after Kansas City's $60-million investment went down with a knee injury during Saturday's game against the Seahawks. Cassel was preliminarily diagnosed with a strained MCL and will probably miss 2-4 weeks. The club was relying heavily on Cassel after finishing 24th in total offense last season.
