Todd Haley Spoke of Walking Away Last Week as Chiefs Coach

According to Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star, as recently as last week, now former head coach Todd Haley indicated during a private conversation that he might resign as Chiefs coach, to leave on his own terms and retain the ability to tell his side of a story that became more chaotic as the season advanced. Most NFL separation agreements include a confidentiality clause, preventing the former employee from speaking publicly about his experience with the organization once the two part ways.

Haley and general manager Scott Pioli were at odds throughout the season, and it became clear even before the Chiefs began what has become a year of injuries, bad decisions and losing that a change was likely. Eight losses already this season, five of them in blowout fashion, made that a virtual certainty.

Haley was gruff and occasionally harsh to players, and he began distancing himself this season from the organization’s clean-cut approach. He began growing a thick beard after the Chiefs’ third contest, an encouraging loss at San Diego, and wore well-used clothing to games and news conferences.
