At least Todd Haley knows Ron Jaworski is a fan of his work.

Even after watching Todd Haley crash and burn in Kansas City, ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo Thursday that he believes the man deserves a second crack at head coaching.

Here is an excerpt from their Jaws' interview about Haley possibly returning to the Cardinals to takeover where Ken Whisenhunt left off:

"Todd Haley is a very good football coach...I will guarantee you this: he will be better prepared to take his next job."

Jaworski added that he has a strong belief that head coaches are much better at the job the second time around since "they know the pitfalls of being the guy in charge."

Haley has not yet agreed to interview with the Cardinals after Arizona reached out to the current offensive coordinator of the Steelers about their job opening at the head coach position. Haley was the Cardinals' offensive coordinator for two seasons from 2007-2009 before taking the Chiefs' lead job.

Haley went 19-26 as the head coach of the Chiefs before being fired in the middle of the 2011 season. To his credit, Haley did led Kansas City to a 10-6 record in his second season which earned them their first AFC West title since 2003.
