With special-teams coordinator Ben Kotwica not feeling especially compelled to sign a new contract to stay in New York, there’s a chance that former Jets special-teams coordinator Mike Westhoff could be returning to the team.
“I’d certainly listen to them,” Westhoff told Rich Cimini of ESPN.com regarding the possibility of un-retiring. “But I’m happy with what I’m doing.”
Westhoff, currently doing media work, says that he has rejected inquiries from other teams.
“I’m no youngster, but I know I could [return to coaching],” Westhoff said. “I didn’t like the way it ended up. But I’m very happy with what I’m doing, my decision to retire. I’m not looking to get back into coaching, but I’ll always look at everything. I’ll never say ‘never.'”
Cimini doesn’t think the Jets will be interested in Westhoff, so it doesn’t matter whether Westhoff is interested in the Jets. Which means that the Jets will look elsewhere to replace the guy who has bolted for the same position in Washington.
