The 8-8 New York Jets didn't exactly have the year they expected to have and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer seems to be paying the price.
The team announced Tuesday night that Schottenheimer had decided to resign even though he still has two years and $3.2 million left on his contract. "It appears the two sides worked out an agreement for him to walk away instead of getting fired," according to the New York Post.
A source to the paper says the team already has Schottenheimer's replacement lined up: former Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano, who was fired in Florida after Week 14. He had "led" the Fins to a 4-9 record this season and a 29-32 record overall over almost four seasons.
