James Edward Hasty (born May 23, 1965) is a former professional American football cornerback who played in the National Football League for the New York Jets, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Oakland Raiders from 1988 to 2001.


Football career

Hasty was selected in the third round of the 1988 NFL Draft (74th overall) by the Jets and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1997 and 1999. He starred at the cornerback position at Washington State University. Known for his aggressive bump and run coverage, Hasty teamed with Dale Carter to form one of the league's top cornerbacking duos while with the Chiefs.

After football

From 2001 to 2004, Hasty was an assistant football coach for Bellevue High School who won 4 straight State Championships in the state of Washington.[1] In 2010, he rejoined the coaching staff of the Bellevue Wolverines as a defensive backs coach. The Bellevue Defensive Coordinator was headed by Chris Beak who had served in various coaching duties in the NFL himself. In September 2010, Chris Beak re-entered the NFL as an offensive assistant coach with the San Francisco 49ers. This led to his taking over as the Bellevue defensive coordinator, where he remained as of 2013.

He started working for ESPN as an NFL analyst on May 3, 2006, where he was also a college football analyst.
