Haley is a weird-ass dude with absolutely no personality. In Arizona and Kansas City, he fought with assistant coaches and players on the sidelines and embarrassed himself and the franchise in 2011 with his outbursts.
He may someday become a solid head coach but it appears to me that day is far off in the horizon.
I don't give a rat's ass what Dick did at UCLA, in Philly, or in Stl.
Dick sucked ass in KC.
His best days were well behind him.
He was never going to get better as the HC in KC.
Todd Haley was just learning on the job.
He had the chance to grow, and with a GM that supported rather than undermining and sabotaging him, he might have been able to do that.
