NEW YORK — Mike Westhoff, the Jets' recently retired special teams coordinator, tells a Florida radio station that the way the team handled Tim Tebow was "an absolute mess."

Westhoff tells WQAM in south Florida on Friday that he was "very, very disappointed" in the Jets' lack of use of Tebow, the popular backup quarterback acquired last March to be a key part of the offense. Instead, Tebow barely got on the field in most games and never started at quarterback – even after Mark Sanchez was benched.

Westhoff adds that he's "still waiting for the unveiling" of the game plan that included lots of Tebow. The quarterback tried to hide his frustration throughout the season, but Westhoff says he could see a change in his demeanor and "that swagger that got out of him a little bit.
