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.
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. 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 49'ers. This led to James Hasty taking over as the Bellevue defensive coordinator.
Hasty's sons, J.R. and Tyler, played football at Bellevue High School. J.R. played football at the University of Washington and Central Washington University but was dismissed from each football program. Tyler redshirted the 2012 football season at Oregon State University but was dismissed from the team following an arrest.
