"I am excited about the opportunity to come back home and work for a tremendous organization," Haley said. "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 is the son of Dick Haley, who spent 44 seasons in the NFL including serving as the Steelers' director of player personnel from 1971-1990.
Haley replaces Bruce Arians, the Indianapolis Colts' new offensive coordinator.
Tomlin previously interviewed former Indianapolis Colts coach jim caldwell, who accepted the Baltimore Ravens' quarterbacks coach job.
Haley was fired by the Chiefs in December. Arians was hired by the Indianapolis Colts after not being retained by the Steelers. Haley, 44, is known as a fiery coach who struggled as a head coach in Kansas City.
The Chiefs went 19-26 under Haley.
Haley was previously an offensive coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals before being hired in Kansas City.
The younger Haley was a ball boy for the Steelers. The Steelers ranked 12th in total offense, ranking 21st in scoring offense.
Haley has also coached for the New York Jets, Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys.
