Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley and his wife were recently named in a lawsuit for trashing a luxury house, but there was an interesting nugget in the story that all but confirmed a story from the offseason.

In a letter from Todd Haley’s wife, Christine, she mentioned that the couple had a chance to move back to Arizona, but decided to stay in the Steel City which they have grown to love.

Haley was linked to the Arizona Cardinals head coaching gig earlier this year, but he ultimately turned down the opportunity to speak with the team for their vacant job. If Haley’s wife is to be believed, Haley wouldn’t even entertain another head coaching job if it meant relocating from Pittsburgh.

Here is the letter from Haley’s wife:

Haley has had a disaster of a season in Pittsburgh, so perhaps he could change his tune next offseason, but for now he loves Pittsburgh and doesn’t have any plans to go elsewhere.

If he was in fact offered the job, Steelers fans are likely wishing he would have left town and become a distant memory.
