Joe Namath isn't a fan of the New York Jets' recent hire.
Former Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano was named the Jets' offensive coordinator on Tuesday, drawing the legendary quarterback to admit he's dumbfounded by the decision.
"I'm stumped. I am stumped," Namath said on "The Michael Kay Show" 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?"
"I've watched Tony work down here with the Dolphins and I thought he carried himself very well through all the adversity and all, but other than having called some plays with the Dallas Cowboys, I don't know what his credentials are for an offensive coordinator."
Namath contends that Sparano's hire comes as a direct result of his previous affiliation with Bill Parcells, with whom current Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum is also linked.
