The Pittsburgh Steelers won’t be changing offensive coordinators this offseason as the organization has decided that they cant afford to lose Todd Haley.
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Haley recently signed a two-year contract extension that will keep in Pittsburgh through the 2016 season.
In 2014, the Steelers offense had a breakout year as they finished a close second to the New Orleans Saints in average yards per game.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger also set a career high for yards in 2014 and tied his high in passing touchdowns with 32.
Despite all of the several obnoxious media reports to the contrary, Haley and Roethlisberger have gotten along just fine since the former arrived in 2012. At this stage of Roethlisberger’s career, I’m sure he will be glad that Haley’s being retained.
The Steelers top 12 or 13 players on offense should be back in 2015 and that should result in the unit hitting the ground quickly. If the team can figure how to overcome the inconsistency they had inside the red zone last season, last year’s scoring numbers might not be safe.
