Bobby April’s time with the Jets is over after only one season. The special-teams coordinator was fired Wednesday after a poor first year with the organization.

Although the timing of April’s dismissal so soon after the season is surprising, the Jets decided they had no choice but to part ways. Assistant special-teams coach Steve Hagen and assistant offensive line coach Ron Heller also were fired.

“After having our season-ending meetings with the staff, I decided that changes were necessary in these areas,” coach Todd Bowles said on the team’s website. “I appreciate their contributions this past season and wish them success in the future.”
