Could the groundswell be turning in Rex Ryan’s favor? If you ask ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the answer to that question is yes. Take a look at his tweet from this afternoon:
There are now multiple signs pointing to Rex Ryan returning as Jets HC next season, per sources; still some issues to work through, however.

It certainly would make a lot of Jets’ fans happy, as most of the polls around the internet show the fan base solidly in favor of coach Ryan coming back.
And why not? Many could make the argument that his coaching job in 2013 was his best so far. Many looked at this Jets’ roster and didn’t think the team would win any more than three to four games. This team might finish 8-8, and a lot of credit must be given to Rex Ryan.
Are his sources right? We will find out soon enough, as “Black Monday” is rapidly approaching. If he stays, I am sure we will find out the “details” that Schefter is referring to as well.
