Jets | Heimerdinger wants out of contract

Karen Crouse, of the New York Times, reports New York Jets offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger wants to be released from the team's coaching staff. The Jets, through their spokesman, Ron Colangelo, said Thursday evening, Jan. 19, that Heimerdinger had been retained to run the offense under the new head coach, Eric Mangini. But Heimerdinger's agent said his client wished to be released from his contract and was being kept on the Jets' staff against his will. "That is what is so incredulous to me, because this just doesn't add up," Heimerdinger's agent, Robert LaMonte, said last night. "I just hope we can get beyond this." Heimerdinger's stance, according to two people close to him is basically this: If the Jets did not consider him valuable enough to promote, why do they want him to stay?
