    Three new coaches in the AFC west with no prior HC experience (unless you want to count Cable's stint as interim coach).

    Makes a lot of sense -- Pioli and Haley were at the Jets together. This also explains why the Chiefs waited so long, they already had their man but couldn't claim him until the SB was over.

    Cardinals take Todd Haley's play from pie in the sky to reality

    From this article Haley sounds like a mini-Belichick, looking at film until he can find a weakness in the opponent that he can exploit - like he did against Carolina.

    I like that he stood up to Parcells multiple times before. Pioli has to keep him out of the draft room though, Haley's two picks that he demanded get picked with Parcells both turned out crappy

    Ehh, I don't know much about Haley but he just seems like one of those "Flavor of the Month" type coaches. He's never been tested by having something bad happen within his offense like Fitzgerald or Warner going out for the year like McDaniels has so it's safe to assume that he might be unprepared for this new job. But then again, I don't remember being overly thrilled the day Belichick came aboard. Boy was I wrong...

    Interesting hire I though however the chiefs were worse on the defensive side of the ball last year couldn't close out close games. They way he runs his offense I can't see Thigpen running it so it should be interesting.

    there is only one way you get head coaching experience...be a head coach. You gotta start somewhere. I think it was a good hire
