PITTSBURGH (AP) A person with direct knowledge of the decision says the Pittsburgh Steelers will not renew offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s contract.
The person confirmed the decision to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because there was no formal announcement from Haley or the team.
The 50-year-old Haley spent six seasons calling the plays in Pittsburgh, guiding one of the NFL’s most dynamic offenses led by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell. The Steelers finished in the top three in total yards in three of the past four years.
The decision comes three days after the AFC North champions were upset at home by Jacksonville in the divisional round of the playoffs.
