Haslett hasn’t been contacted as a candidate for NFL job
Despite a FanHouse.com story indicating that UFL coach Jim Haslett has been contacted by an NFL team with an interest in hiring Haslett, a league source tells us that Haslett hasn’t been contacted regarding himself.
Per the source, Haslett’s comments to FanHouse.com related to NFL interest in UFL players.
Here’s the full quote from the FanHouse.com story: “A lot of guys have been contacted; myself, a bunch of coaches have been contacted, so we’ll see. . . . So, I am sure there will be a few others from these two teams. DeDe Dorsey is a heck of a player on the Locos, and we have a bunch of guys who I think will be contacted.”
Haslett has been mentioned as a potential candidate for the head-coaching job in Buffalo, where Haslett was a Pro Bowl linebacker during his playing days.
