Steelers | Owner says Todd Haley was Mike Tomlin's choice

Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II said he had nothing to do with the hiring of Todd Haley as offensive coordinator. Rooney added he was a bit surprised that head coach Mike Tomlin hired Haley. "I think the bottom line is, Mike was comfortable that's who he wanted to come in," Rooney said. "It may be fair to say that when he started the discussions and Todd's name was on his original list, I don't think he expected that Todd was the guy he was going to wind up hiring. But as he had more conversations with him, he became more comfortable that he was the right guy for the job."
