NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Westhoff, the Jets' recently retired special teams coordinator, tells a Florida radio station that the way the team handled Tim Tebow was "an absolute mess."
Westhoff tells WQAM in south Florida on Friday that he was "very, very disappointed" in the Jets' lack of use of Tebow, the popular backup quarterback acquired last March to be a key part of the offense. Instead, Tebow barely got on the field in most games and never started at quarterback - even after Mark Sanchez was benched.
