“Bill Walsh was an exceptional coach,” Haley said. “No one inspired me like Bill Walsh did. “I never had anyone passionate to help me like Walsh did. I’ve never met another man like that.”

Haley played six season for the 49ers and won a pair of Super Bowl rings. But George Seifert, who succeeded Walsh as the 49ers head coach, sent him packing, delivering a final key piece to the championship teams of the 1990s for the Cowboys. “It hurt,” Haley said of being traded to the Cowboys in 1992. “I was just mad at the world. “Jerry Jones took a chance on me. The 49ers did a character assassination on me after I left. Jerry Jones loves the Dallas Cowboys and will do anything to make them better.” Source: Times Record News.

Haley was enshrined into the NFL Hall of Fame on August 8 in Canton, Ohio. He is the only player in pro football history to win five Super Bowls including three with the Dallas Cowboys and two with the San Francisco 49ers. He played in six NFC championship games over a seven-season period. He started at left outside linebacker for the 49ers in the 1988, 1989, and 1990 games and at right defensive end for the Cowboys in the conference championships in 1992, 1993, and 1994. He was inactive for the Cowboys’ victory in the 1995 NFC Championship Game. When he walked away for the final time, Haley had amassed 100.5 sacks during his 169-game career. He was twice named NFC Defensive Player of the Year (1990 and 1994), voted to five Pro Bowls and named All-Pro two times.
