TODD HALEY COORDINATOR
HALEY WAS once in charge of the high-flying Arizona offense with Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. The pieces in Pittsburgh are in place for similarly huge productivity. Haley is an aggressive play-caller and an emotional coach who has been known to clash with players at times, but the bottom line is that he burns to win. Like his predecessor, Bruce Arians, Haley can go long stretches ignoring the run and letting his quarterback carry the offense. With so much speed on the roster, Haley will look to Ben Roethlisberger to execute the big strike, be it on first, second or third down, and Big Ben will produce often.
HAL HUNTER COORDINATOR
YOU WILL NOT find a QB and coach closer than Philip Rivers and Norv Turner. The two complete each other's sentences. (Too bad Turner couldn't have completed some of Rivers's throws during the early part of 2011.) While Turner will continue to call the plays, Hunter adds the coordinator duties to his role as line coach, a position he has held since '06. San Diego was the only team in the league to throw for more than 4,500 yards and rush for more than 1,800 in each of the last two seasons. Its successful formula will be largely unchanged, but expect Ryan Mathews to continue to improve as a weapon out of the backfield. Newly acquired wide receiver Robert Meachem could shine.
