Todd Haley’s future as Pittsburgh Steelers OC at crossroads
And yet, heading into the Steelers’ AFC Divisional Round playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the relationship between Haley and Roethlisberger was in as bad of a place as it’s been in years. The communication has been an issue, one reason why quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner has come down from the booth to the sidelines to serve as a conduit.
One option for Haley could be going with head coaching candidate and offensive line coach Mike Munchak if he gets the Cardinals job.
Haley is expected to be on the sidelines Sunday, even with a broken pelvis suffered after being attacked outside a bar on New Year’s Eve. The decision facing the Steelers is not related to the incident, a source said.
Either way, it remains to be seen if Haley, Roethlisberger and the Steelers stay together this offseason.
There could be jurisdictional issues in the case as well, with the NFL having filed a competing lawsuit in New York in an attempt to have the suspension and Henderson’s ruling affirmed.

Another Papa John’s executive, chief operating officer Steve Ritchie, made the case Wednesday that, as the official pizza company of the NFL, its fortunes are tied to the league. Ritchie said he expected the earnings decline for Papa John’s to persist until a solution is put in place by the NFL for its player protests.
