Todd Haley top candidate to replace Cardinals' Ken Whisenhunt, according to report

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Arizona Cardinals have had internal talks about Todd Haley being a possible replacement at head coach, according to report.

Ken Whisenhunt is still the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, but that doesn't mean there haven't been talks of replacing him. The name that has popped up the most is Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive coordinator Todd Haley, according to CBS Sports.

The Cardinals lost nine-straight games before finally halting the streak on Sunday. The streak was primarily the culprit of an inept offensive unit that couldn't balance out a solid defense. Haley has produced results as the Steelers' offensive coordinator following his firing as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. Haley served as the offensive coordinator for the Cardinals when they went to the Super Bowl.

Haley is still a favorite of the Cardinals organization and his familiarity would make for a smoother transition than with other coaches. But the Cardinals still owe Whisenhunt $5.5 million on his contract, so whether or not they are willing to take that financial hit will be a major consideration in whether Whisenhunt stays or not.
