Mike Heimerdinger Dead at 58

“Once you are a Jet you are a Jet for life.”  Well the Jets lost a member of the family on Friday night.

Multiple tweets have come out this morning indicating that Mike Heimerdinger lost his battle with a rare form of cancer Friday night.  He was 58 years old.

Heimerdinger was a widely known offensive coordinator, most notably with the Titans, but did spend Herm Edwards’ final year with the Jets as offensive coordinator, and interviewed for the head coaching job that Eric Mangini eventually landed.

Known around the league as a great guy, he will be missed.
