Westhoff leaving team

Posted Dec 30, 2007

Jets coach Eric Mangini announced after the game that special team's coach Mike Westhoff is stepping down from his position for medical reasons.

Unfortunately, Westhoff will need another surgery on his problematic left leg, and this won't allow him to coach next season.

"It was a decision he had to make," said Mangini.

Westhoff will go down as one of the greatest special team's coaches in NFL history.
