There had been reports that Haley would join former Miami Dolphins Head Coach Tony Sparano, who was recently hired as the Jets’ offensive coordinator, as an offensive assistant. The thinking was that Sparano would focus on the running game while Haley would coordinate the passing attack.
According to Mehta, Haley and the Jets came to a “mutual decision.”
You have to wonder if the recent report from the Kansas City Star alleging that Haley believed Chiefs GM Scott Pioli was bugging his office and phones might have made the Jets wary of bringing Haley on board.
There have also been reports that Haley has met with the Arizona Cardinals and that he could return to the team he helped reach the Super Bowl before coming to Kansas City.
