Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley and his wife must pay an Oakdale man more than $10,000 for boarding their four dogs, an arbitration panel ruled on Monday.

According to court documents, the Haleys owe Nick Fiscante $10,090 because the couple failed to pay him for boarding the dogs at his house between March and July 2012.

A civil complaint against the Haleys was filed in April and District Judge Maureen McGraw-Desmet originally ruled in Fiscante's favor in August. The Haleys appealed.

Christine Haley, who appeared in court on Monday, told the arbitration panel that she paid Fiscante $3,000 but refused to pay the rest because two of their English bulldogs became so aggressive that she had to get rid of them.

“Your little kids say, ‘Where are George and Frank?' because they want their dogs back. We couldn't take a risk to have them hurt,” Christine Haley told the Trib's news partner WPXI TV.

Fiscante denied the allegations.

“If we owe somebody, we pay them. That's how things are done here. I don't know if celebrity status comes into play with it, and I'm hoping that's not the case,” Fiscante said.

In August, a McMurray homebuilder sued the Haleys, alleging they badly damaged a $1.4 million home they rented in Upper St. Clair and skipped out on the deal to buy it.

The Haleys deny the allegations, their attorney told the Trib, and have filed claims against the homebuilder.

Todd Haley, former head coach for the Kansas City Chiefs, joined the Steelers in 2012. He is the son of Dick Haley, a former director of player personnel for the Steelers.
