KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Accused of making an obscene gesture to a fan, Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley says such a thing is not in his character.
Fans were abuzz Wednesday over an accusation leveled Tuesday night through a Kansas City TV sportscaster. The fan, who was not identified by the sportscaster, said the former Cardinals offensive coordinator flipped him off while walking into the tunnel right after Sunday's 41-34 home loss to Cleveland.
Haley responded Wednesday, saying he appreciates Chiefs fans and wouldn't disrespect them. He said he has five children to be a role model for and making obscene gestures to fans is not the way he behaves.
Haley said, "That's not something I do, would do, want to do, or want to be thought of as doing."
