The Steelers have hired Todd Haley as the team's new offensive coordinator.

Haley interviewed with head coach Mike Tomlin last week for the job made vacant by Bruce Arians' exit. Arians is now the Colts' offensive coordinator.

"I am excited about the opportunity to come back home and work for a tremendous organization," Haley said in a statement released by the team. "It is an honor to work with the Rooney family and Coach Tomlin and continue the success that has become synonymous with the Steelers. My father has so many fond memories both from his playing days and his time in the personnel department with the team, and I look forward to helping bring more championships to Pittsburgh and to being a part of one of the storied franchises in the NFL."

Haley was the Chiefs' head coach for almost three seasons and was fired this past season after 13 games. Before taking over in Kansas City, Haley was the Cardinals' offensive coordinator. He has also been an assistant with the Jets, Bears and Cowboys.

Haley's father, Dick Haley, was a defensive back for the Steelers from 1961-1964 and later a member of the team's personnel department from 1971-1990.
