Tony Sparano and Todd Haley talked about joining forces again this offseason, but it doesn’t look like it will happen.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets and Haley came to a “mutual decision” in recent days that Haley will not join Sparano on the team’s staff.
Sparano is the offensive coordinator. He’s more well versed in the running game, so the idea was that Haley would be a quarterbacks coach/passing game coordinator. Mehta writes Haley won’t join the staff barring an “eleventh-hour” reversal.
Perhaps the Jets tapped Haley’s phone and didn’t like what they heard.
The former Chiefs head coach has spoken with the Cardinals about working for Ken Whisenhunt again. That appears to be Haley’s most likely landing spot for 2012.
