Simple answer is because the old Hc doesn't have a clue about what it means to be a HC. Rex Ryan is a darn great DC and there's nothing wrong with that.
The Jets used to have a Solid HC who was not a play caller on either Offense or defense. He managed the players, the NY media and his coaches. If he was given the lattitude that Woody Johnson is giving this blowhard of a HC we have today, who knows what could have been.
I have never before in my life hear someone say that they failed miserably at the Job they were hired to do, not once but twice and was given even more power by their employer. What could be so bad that you would rather be thought of as the village idiot than to have your issue exposed ? With all Rex Ryan's issues, what could he possibly have on Woody Johnson ?
The current Jets team is in need of a large scale rebuild both in personnel and philosophy. A new head coach will be able to oversee the process from its first stages while instilling his own system, vision, and expectations.Quote:

In my mind, a Rex-less Jets team is inevitable so why delay the start of the next chapter of this franchise?
By bringing in a new HC, they can take their lumps in 2013 and build for 2014 and beyond.
By keeping Rex, The delusional Woody and Rex are going to make short-sighted decisions to try and win in 2013. So instead of winning 3 or 4 games, we may win 5. But the cost will dig into 2014 and beyond.
1. Rex won't draft a QB. Not in the first, not in the 7th. He does not have the time to develop a QB.
2. In order to give the Jets more cap space, he is going to approach players like Cromartie, Pouha, Holmes, possibly Mangold and D'Brick to rework deals. So instead of having $60M in cap space to work with in 2014, we eat up a ton of space in order to field the best possible team in 2013 - which will be futile.
