Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is one of the best assistant coaches in the league and could well land a head coaching gig, but that apparently doesn't exclude him from being pushed outside a bar in the heart of Steelers country.
Haley was shoved to the ground outside a bar near Heinz Field on New Years Eve, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, and he injured his hip on the fall. The Steelers released a statement that did acknowledge the fall and injury but did not say that he was pushed.
And the spokesperson for the Pittsburgh Police Department said that it was Haley's wife who was involved in a scuffle that quickly ended, and that both Haleys were escorted out of the bar. She said that Haley was not involved in the scuffle and was not injured.
This all took place outside a bar called Tequila Cowboy, according to 93.7 The Fan's Andrew Fillipponi.
It's not at all clear what actually went down—there are three different accounts, after all—but Haley is expected to be back on the sidelines when the Steelers host an AFC Divisional Round playoff game on Sunday, Jan. 14.
Still, one has to wonder what led to Haley, who is 50 years old, to get into an argument that led to him getting kicked out of a bar.
