The Upper St. Clair native is currently the offensive coordinator with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
NFL.com is reporting that the Arizona Cardinals have requested permission to interview Todd Haley for the vacant head coaching position.

Many NFL players just try to stay healthy until the regular season starts.
Is it too much to ask to have your top three draft picks healthy for the regular season? How 'bout just one of them? Although their second-round pick, offensive tackle Mike Adams, has seemingly recovered from his preseason knee injury, the Pittsburgh Steelers may be without first-round guard David DeCastro and third-round linebacker Sean Spence for at least a large part of the 2012 regular season after DeCastro and Spence both suffered serious knee injuries during the NFL's mandatory four-game preseason. Debates over the value of preseason games when the injury risks associated with them are weighed in have waged for years among football fans, and a rash of injuries to promising young Steelers this preseason has gotten many Pittsburghers …

The Steelers will start preseason play in 2012 without the Pro Bowl receiver.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will have to replace much of their depth and leadership from a year ago. Gone are Aaron Smith, James Farrior, Chris Hoke and Hines Ward and their combined eight Super Bowl titles, 12 AFC championships, five All-Pro honors, seven Pro Bowl selections and a Super Bowl MVP trophy. And joining that list of ex-Steelers could be Mike Wallace, another player with an appearance in both a Super and Pro bowl. Wallace's all-star year came just a season ago, as he led the Steelers with 72 receptions, almost 1,200 receiving yards, and eight touchdown catches—six more than fellow Pro Bowler Antonio Brown, who was signed to a $42.5-million contract extension through the 2017 season on July 27, this year. Wallace is in a contract …

Ward confirmed he will retire as a Pittsburgh Steeler during a very tearful speech.

I am a competitor and I would love nothing more than to get to another Super Bowl.

A former NFL player reflects on his weight loss journey.
Getting healthy and maintaining it takes some work. I know, because I lost 100 pounds. To get my head around that, I need to do some comparison. Do you know what weighs 100 pounds? A baby hippo, a full-sized wolf and one of the largest pmpkins in the world. The weight fell off in chunks during two distinct periods during the course of six years. One of those periods was a 6-month timeframe after I completed five seasons in the National Football League as a 310-pound offensive lineman for the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens. The second period was a 6-month journey that included fasting in the Arizona desert—where I was living at the time—and lifestyle adjustments. Dozens of former teammates asked me how I did it. Many of them have gone …
