Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is expected to remain with the team next sesason.
After an initial 0-3 start to the regular season, reports suggested that there was a possibility that Haley would be fired following the season. As a result, Haley’s control of the offense was reportedly divided to some degree.
Rapoport adds that HC Mike Tomlin became more involved on the offense, which allowed QB Ben Roethlisberger to call his own plays in the no-huddle and RBs coach Kirby Wilson was given additional duties as well.
Despite finishing the season as the No. 20 offense, the Steelers in-season adjustments resulted in them finishing No. 12 in the league in passing. Although this approach came at the cost of the running game as they finished No. 27 in that department.
The Steelers were able to fight back and nearly make the playoffs as the season went on. Their offense should improvement, if only slightly, over last season, which appears to have been enough to have won Haley one more year in Pittsburgh.
