BREAKING: Adam Schefter is reporting that Rex Ryan and the New York Jets have come to terms on a multi year extension. It seems that this plan has been in the works for weeks as Jets owner Woody Johnson let the team know that Rex would be retained after the season ending victory in Miami against the Dolphins.
Jets and head coach Rex Ryan have reached agreement on a multi-year extension, according to team and league sources.

Rex Ryan boasts a 42-38 record as New York Jets Head coach. Next to Weeb Ewbank Rex Ryan is arguably the greatest New York Jets coach ever. It was not until he was brought here in 2009, that the New York Jets have had an identity. Though braggadocios at times, there is no doubt that Rex Ryan is not only a great motivator, but a great leader of men as well.
We are not saying Rex his perfect, but he is the perfect fit for this organization. He has been more involved in the offense than he has been in previous years. Also, this year he decided to go back to calling plays on the defensive side of the ball. It seems that this has paid off as Rex got the most out of an average team this year. Initially, we all thought that Idzik was force fed Rex and would scrap him after this year and replace him with an “Idzik guy.” We know one thing for certain; John Idzik is a calculated risk taker and a patient man. He gave Rex the season to prove himself, and Rex did just that. All we are left with now is the suspense building up to the draft, and to see how Idzik/Rex fill in these holes on the coaching staff and roster.
