Jets head coach Todd Bowles has informed special teams coordinator Bobby April, assistant special teams coach Steve Hagen and assistant offensive line coach Ron Heller that they will not return for the 2016 season.
“After having our season-ending meetings with the staff, I decided that changes were necessary in these areas," Bowles said. "I appreciate their contributions this past season and wish them success in the future.”
This was April's first season with the Jets and his 24th as an NFL special teams coach. Hagen was in his third season with the Green & White and his 11th as an NFL assistant. Heller was also in his third season as a Jets coach and his fifth as a league assistant coach.
