He has his supporters (28 points per game with an inexperienced offensive line and multiple injuries) and his detractors (lawsuits for alleged unpaid bills, past struggles as a head coach), but if Todd Haley leads the Steelers to an output on the level of their final nine games, he could find himself landing an interview.

Maybe teams want to see if the Steelers' offense can back it up next year.

Perhaps they're of the group that believes there was a legitimate riff between himself and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Or maybe it was just due to a nasty final year in Kansas City.

However he's perceived, it's a good bet a lot of that will go away if Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is able to run an offense in 2014 that was as potent as it was over the team's final nine games of 2013.

That could put him in line for a head coaching gig in 2015.

This is the same Todd Haley who was featured as the subject of Wrath of Steeler Nation Magazine as recently as two minutes ago. Coaches often draw the ire and frustration of fans, and Haley earned much (not all) of that skepticism. The reality is, though, it's an offensive league, and considering the overall talent Haley's had to work with, it wouldn't be a surprise - given a repeat performance of the team's final nine games when they averaged roughly 28 points a game - if his tires are kicked by an owner or general manager in the market for a new coach.

Sure, if we win another SB while he is OC. We need to at least get to the playoffs for anybody to sniff at him.
