Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, citing a team source, reports that Steelers OC Todd Haley is dealing with a shattered pelvis and a badly bruised left side that suffered during an incident that took place on New Year’s Eve.
Haley addressed the situation by saying that it’s a “non-issue” for both the team and the organization.
“A few nights ago unfortunately I was in a situation,’’ said Haley. “The situation, though not of my doing, has been made clear to me by the Steelers that it is a non-issue to both the team and the Steelers organization.’’
“My sole focus is on preparing for next week’s playoff game, so it won’t be addressed further.”
Reports mentioned that Haley was shoved to the ground after he and his wife had dinner and drinks at the “Tequila Cowboy” on New Year’s Eve.
No charges have been filed in the matter and Haley has since returned to work with the Steelers.
Haley has come up as a potential head-coaching candidate. However, he has yet to schedule any interviews for the available coaching positions.
Haley, 50, began his NFL career with the Jets as a scouting assistant back in 1995. He has worked for a number of teams including the Bears, Cowboys and Chiefs before joining the Steelers as their offensive coordinator in 2012.
We’ll have more regarding Haley as the news is available.
