Todd Haley back in mix for Cardinals job

It appears Todd Haley may be coming back to the Cardinals after all.

Haley has been looking for work since being fired as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs December 12, and though he’s been connected to the Cardinals, the only vacant spot on the staff is that of a QB coach, a job that seems a bit beneath Haley’s stature.

Maybe not, according to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network.

LaCanfora’s report seems to indicate that Haley may be more agreeable to coming back to Arizona, even if it’s as QB coach, than previously thought.

Why that is, who knows. It’s possible Haley would prefer to join a staff and team he’s familiar with, as he was Arizona’s offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008 before becoming the boss in Kansas City. Or, maybe, he’s just not finding many great offers out there from other teams.

Regardless of why he’d be coming back, Cardinals fans would most certainly be happy to have him.
