Former Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley was rumored as a candidate to join the New York Jets offensive coaching staff under new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano but according to a report by the New York Daily News, is no longer a candidate.
The Daily News has learned that barring an eleventh-hour course reversal, Todd Haley will not be joining the Jets' coaching staff. Haley, who was fired by the Chiefs after Week 14, interviewed for an offensive staff position last week.
There was speculation that Haley would team up with new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, who coached with him in Dallas, but it doesn't appear that that will happen now. A source told the News that the Jets and Haley came to "a mutual decision" in recent days.
