Lets say the new GM fires Rex. Who, in all seriousness do we look at for Head coach. Granted GM would hire, but who would be a great fit for this team.
Cowher said he's a great defensive mind. I've continually said that Ryan is an excellent defensive coach. Who said they respected him as a head coach? Even then. In January of 2011, Ryan was the toast of the town. My how the mighty have fallen.
What's happened since then to make Bill Cowher say last week that the Jets are completely dysfunctional. He wasn't touting Rex Ryan 2 years later. There's no one out there saying Rex Ryan is a respected head coach.
I'm glad you actually read it though past the first page, because until I brought up Cowher, you thought that it only had comments made by baseball managers... You're welcome.
The players were behind Ryan’s return as head coach and they expressed sadness about Tannenbaum getting fired.
Revis went down with a season-ending knee injury the third game* and watched the team unravel from afar as he was rehabbing. He saw the fits and starts, the sputtering offense, the Tebow turmoil. It wasn’t pretty. Still, he is in favor of Ryan returning for next season.
“Yeah. I think Rex is a great coach,’’ Revis said. “Just looking outside in, we just need to evaluate this offseason and try to get some playmakers in here to come out and make plays.’’
.Though Tannenbaum was let go after the team's second consecutive season of not making the playoffs, Rex Ryan has been retained, a decision the players supported.
"I always had a feeling Rex would be back, just because of the type of coach he is, the way the guys in this locker room respect him," said defensive lineman Mike DeVito. "He's a great person to be around, and a guy you want to go out and play for. I think everybody kind of recognizes that. That's an intangible quality that's great to have."
"When you have everybody in this locker room buying in and rallying around one guy, it's something that makes for a successful team," DeVito added.
If its Gamble, it could be Roman or the SF DC.
Caldwell: Koetter or Mike Nolan
Ross: Perry Fewell or at least someone who is a disciplined hard ass like Todd Haley orperhaps even Mike Nolan
If its Heckert, it could be Shurmur.
Of course there seems to be an increasing trend that ST coaches have better potential as HCs because they are used to working with many different players at various positions. Look at how successful Harbaugh has been in Balt.
Plus, look at some of the interview requests from Chi. I think they have contacted three teams to speak to their ST coaches.
Any of these could be possibilities next week or a year from now.
I agree with the OP. I think the new GM will evaluate Rex and determine his fate. That's why Rex has not been allowed to address the media.

6 million reasons why Rex will be back
When we want him to shut up, he can't help himself, won't stop talking.
Now that we need our leadership to speak to us and tell us what's what after a very long and frustrating season, dead silence.
There are 12 teams in the playoffs whose seasons are continuing.
There are 19 teams that aren't going to the playoffs and they all had their head coaches and owners give final press conferences, sum up their seasons, explain their future direction, answer questions that fans deserve answers to.
There is 1 team that isn't going to the playoffs and hasn't said anything.
You may not find that odd. I do.
