UFL coach Jim Haslett, who previously served as head coach of the Saints and interim coach of the Rams, has admitted that he has been contacted by an NFL team, according to FanHouse.com.
Though Haslett has declined to name the team that has contacted him, only one team currently is looking for a head coach — and Haslett has been linked to only one team.
The Buffalo Bills.
It’s also possible that Haslett has been contacted by the Buccaneers regarding the possibility of taking over a defense that previously was coordinated by Jim Bates.
Haslett isn’t the only employee of the 6-1 Florida Tuskers, who lost the inaugural UFL title game in overtime, to draw interest from the NFL.
“A lot of guys have been contacted; myself, a bunch of coaches have been contacted, so we’ll see,” Haslett said.
Haslett was a candidate for the Bills job the last time it was vacant, but owner Ralph Wilson opted to hire Dick Jauron.
