Last week, it appeared that former Chiefs coach Todd Haley was not going to find a job with his former team, the Cardinals, even though both sides apparently wanted it to happen. That’s because Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt didn’t want to remove offensive coordinator Mike Miller, and though there was an open quarterback coach position, Haley apparently didn’t want to take anything less than a coordinator job.

Things apparently have changed.
NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora reports that Haley is in Arizona today for an interview and writes, “Based off what I'm hearing now, sounds like they may be able to find common ground this time and make it work.”
Haley spent 2007-08 in Arizona as the offensive coordinator, and in his final season before getting the Kansas City job, the Cardinals were a top-five offense.
With Miller in his first season as coordinator this year, Arizona ranked 19th in yards gained and 24th in points scored, but Arizona finished 8-8, somewhat surprising since franchise quarterback Kevin Kolb was out for about half the season and the team lost second-round pick Ryan Williams before the year began.
As for what kind of job Haley and Whisenhunt have been talking about? I have no idea. Maybe we should ask Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli.
