Offensive Coordinator

Todd Haley is in his fifth season as the Steelers’ offensive coordinator, after being hired on February 7, 2012. Haley is in his 22nd season in the NFL and his 20th as a coach.

In 2015, the Steelers suffered numerous injuries on offense. Center Maurkice Pouncey and running back Le’Veon Bell each suffered season-ending injuries, and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did not start five games due to injury. Despite not having these Pro Bowl players, Pittsburgh’s offense got significant contributions from all players, as the group managed to rank in the top-five in numerous categories.

The Steelers tied for the NFL lead by averaging 6.3 yards per play. Pittsburgh’s offense also ranked third in the league in net yards per game (395.4) and passing yards per game (287.7). The Steelers’ offense also tied for fourth in the NFL in points per game (26.4), and the group ranked fifth in the league in plays of 20 or more yards (76) and rushing plays of 20 or more yards (15).

In 2015, Roethlisberger led the league in passing yards per game (328.2), and he set the team’s single-season record by completing 68.0% of his passes. Wide receiver Antonio Brown set new single-season team records by recording 136 receptions for 1,834 yards. Running back DeAngelo Williams, in his first season as a Steeler, tied for the league lead with 11 rushing touchdowns, and he totaled 1,274 scrimmage yards.

The Steelers’ offense had a record-setting season in 2014, establishing new franchise single-season records in points (436), total net yards (6,577), passing yards per game (301.6), total first downs (379) and individual 100-yard receiving games (12). Pittsburgh’s offense also finished first in the NFL in time of possession (32:24), yards per first-down play (6.42) and tied for first (Green Bay) in the NFL in yards per play (6.2). Pittsburgh also scored 30 points seven times on the season to tie a franchise record for most 30-point games in a single season (1975 and 1979).   

In 2014, the Steelers became the first NFL team since the 1976 Baltimore Colts to have three different players finish in the top-two in passing yards, receiving yards and scrimmage yards in a single-season.

Roethlisberger threw for a team record 4,952 yards, which was also tied for the most in the NFL (Drew Brees, New Orleans). He also set the single-season team record with 408 completions. Brown set a single-season Steelers’ record with 13 receiving touchdowns. Bell set the single-season team record for yards from scrimmage (2,215), receptions by a running back (83), receiving yards for a running back (854) and total first downs (114). 

In 2012, his first season as offensive coordinator, the Steelers’ offense finished second in the NFL in time of possession (32:07), fourth in red zone scoring (91.8%) and 10th in third-down efficiency (42%).

Prior to joining the Steelers, Haley was the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs for the majority of three seasons (2009-11). In his second season as the Chiefs’ head coach, the team completed the greatest single-season turnaround in franchise history, and the 2010 Chiefs reached the postseason for the first time since 2006. Following the club’s highest win total since 2005, Haley was named the 101 AFC Coach of the Year voted on by national media members and was also awarded NFL Alumni Coach of the Year.

Before becoming head coach of the Chiefs, he served as the Arizona Cardinals’ offensive coordinator for two seasons (2007-08). During his tenure with the Cardinals, the team won the club’s first division title since 1975 and played in Super Bowl XLIII. Under Haley’s guidance, Arizona’s offense was one of the league’s most explosive units. In 2008, Arizona tied for third in the league with a franchise-record 427 points, finished fourth in total offense, averaging 365.8 yards per game and finished second in the league in passing offense. The Cardinals also became just the fifth team in NFL history to have three wide receivers eclipse 1,000 yards in the same season.

From 1999 to 2006, Haley spent time as wide receivers coach for the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and New York Jets, helping each team earn a playoff berth. Haley began his NFL career as an assistant in the Jets scouting department in 1995, where he scouted regionally and assisted in player evaluations.

Haley earned a degree in communications from the University of North Florida in 1991. In February of 2010, Haley received the Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award, the highest award given by the University of North Florida Alumni Association, recognizing those who have made a significant contribution to their profession, community and society. He was a member of the golf squads at the University of Florida and the University of Miami, and participated in the NCAA golf tournament during his time with the Gators.

Haley is the son of Dick Haley, former Director of Player Personnel for the Pittsburgh Steelers (1971-91). As a youth, Haley was a ball boy for the Steelers and attended Steelers training camps with his father. Alongside his father, Haley would watch the Steelers' game and practice film.

Haley was born in Atlanta, Ga., but attended Upper St. Clair High School in Pittsburgh, Pa. He and his wife, Chrissy, have four daughters, Taylor, Peyton, Kady and Ella, and one son, Richard Todd, Jr.
