Report: Chiefs may not pay balance of Haley contract

A report has emerged from the Twitter feed of Mike Jurecki, a broadcaster for XTRA-910 in Phoenix that the Kansas City Chiefs may be planning not to play fired head coach Todd Haley the balance of his contract.

Haley was fired by the Chiefs with three games remaining in the regular season, replaced by Romeo Crennel. Haley, who came from the Arizona Cardinals and could wind up back there as an assistant coach, accused the Chiefs of eavesdropping on conversations inside the facility, believing that phones and offices were bugged.

If the Chiefs do refuse to pay, then expect Haley to probably file a grievance to try and recover the balance of his contract, in much the same way Lane Kiffin filed a grievance against the late Al Davis and the Oakland Raiders, when Davis refused to play the balance of his contract after firing Kiffin.
