The Jets have fired offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, as expected, per league sources.

Eric Weeks, TheJetsBlog.comWhile many expected an announcement sooner rather than later, the Jets finally decided to part ways with the embattled Sparano who struggled to adapt to his new coordinator responsibilities. He was criticized for being unimaginative and predictable while his tenure was marred by injuries and poor execution on the part of the players. For those of you who were betting (either in jest or all seriousness) on Sparano staying, sorry to disappoint but, it looks like the Jets are moving forward in a new direction and will look to bring in fresh minds … ones that hopefully won’t have the Jets’ offense ranked in the bottom of the league.
