NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets have hired Marty Mornhinweg as their offensive coordinator, replacing the fired Tony Sparano.
Mornhinweg spent the past 10 years as an assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles, including the past seven as the team's offensive coordinator.
He was previously the head coach of the Detroit Lions, and was also an assistant with San Francisco and Green Bay.
Sparano was fired after one season as the Jets' offensive coordinator as New York finished 30th in overall offense.
Mornhinweg is expected to bring a more wide-open passing approach to the Jets, who have relied more often on a ``Ground-and-Pound'' philosophy under Rex Ryan. It is uncertain if starter Mark Sanchez, owed $8.25 million in guarantees, or backup Tim Tebow, expected to be traded or released, will remain with the team.
