Joe Namath not pleased with Jets' hiring of Tony Sparano

Friday January 13th, 2012

Legendary New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath said Thursday that he was "stumped" by the hiring of former Miami Dolphins' coach Tony Sparano as offensive coordinator for the Jets.

"I'm stumped. I am stumped," Namath said Thursday on 1050 ESPN New York. "Aye, aye, aye, aye. Let's ask the world: Do you like the choice of Tony Sparano as offensive coordinator?"

Namath made the suggestion that Sparano -- who was fired by the Dolphins -- only got the job because he was a disciple of Bill Parcells.
