Haley says he should have shaken hands with McDaniels

Chiefs coach Todd Haley has rethought his stance on not shaking the hand of Broncos coach Josh McDaniels after Sunday’s loss in Denver.

Monday, Haley said he made a mistake in not offering his hand to the winning coach.

“It sounds like it’s become a big deal and I do want to apologize for me not shaking Josh’s hand after the game,” he said. “I do believe in doing what’s right and that was not right. Probably let the emotions of the situation get me too much. And I apologize. I apologize to the fans and to Denver and to Josh.”

Haley declined to say what upset him.

“I don’t think that’s necessary to get into it,” he said. “I think it’s very necessary that I let everybody know that I would do that over again at the end, and it wasn’t the right thing to do.”

He said he had not contacted McDaniels to personally apologize.

“I felt like, again, communicating to the majority, and anybody that was watching it, to let them know how I felt and I think that’s what’s important,” he said.
