    Signs point to Rex Ryan's return as New York Jets coach http://dlvr.it/4bVgsC

    One well-placed NFL executive believes Rex Ryan will return as coach of the New York Jets, based on conversations he has had.

    Despite speculation that Ryan would be fired after this season, another well-connected source told ESPN that the atmosphere surrounding his status has turned from negative to positive.

    Rex Ryan owns a 41-38 career record with the Jets, who have exceeded expectations this season.
    It remains unclear whether Ryan will enter next season on the last year of his contract or whether the Jets will give him a contract extension, sources said.

    Although Ryan has received consistent backing from Jets owner Woody Johnson, his support from first-year general manager John Idzik has been questioned. But to the surprise of many around the league, Ryan and Idzik have gotten along better than most anticipated.

    Another issue facing the Jets is that at least a half dozen assistant coaches, including defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman, are working on expiring contracts. Those issues still need to be addressed and worked through, according to sources.

    Ryan is nearing the completion of his fifth season with the Jets, who can finish with an 8-8 record if they upset the rival Miami Dolphins.

    Although they have exceeded expectations this season, the Jets have missed the playoffs in each of the past three years under Ryan, who owns a 41-38 career record. New York advanced to the AFC Championship Game in each of its first two seasons with Ryan.



    If this accurate, it confirms what most insiders have been saying about Idzik and Ryan getting along.

    The only question that remains is if there is an extension, and if so how long? I have the feeling Rex will be coaching for his job again next season.

    Not surprised to see this. I don't see the groundswell to fire Rex. He deserves another year with an upgraded offense

    1 year extension and Rex has to make the playoffs next year or the franchise moves on. Let's be serious here this team has is in the middle of a rebuild after the roster fell apart after the '11 season. '12 was a wasted year thanks to Woody and Tanny trading for Tebow and Sanchez self-destructing. Considering the transition of personnel and roster overhaul Rex did do a pretty decent job this year and even some of his biggest detractors agree.

    I don't understand all this "extension" talk, the man is under contract.

    Let him earn an extension in his final year, not coming off 3 non-playoff seasons.

    It's NFL SOP to extend a coach at least 1 year beyond last season of his contract to avoid "lame duck scenario".

    I am on record as wanting to move but if this is what Idzik decides then so be it. With that said there is only one way to bring Rex back. They must give him a two year extension so that his contract expires at the end of the 2016 season. That would coincide with the resigning of his coaching staff to 3 year contracts as well. You can't get half pregnant! If you are going to keep him around then you make a commitment to him and his staff. Maybe replace a few pieces of his staff like Kotwica and Lai. If you are a team rebuilding then do it the right way. Letting Rex just coach out the remaining year on his contract is just plain foolish. Extend or move on!

    You decide now if he is the right guy to lead your team for the next three years. If the answer to that question is no then you fire him. This make the playoffs or get fired is no way to run the organization while they are rebuilding. Too many players will be signed and drafted over the next twelve months to waste them on guys who are not a good fit for a new regime.

    Agreed go with Rex for the long haul...if he really does that bad of a job you can still fire him

    I always felt Rex should be back, but it has to be Idzik's decision. The franchise has to function right, meaning the GM has to decide the HC. If Rex is indeed coming back with Idzik's blessing this is good news.

    Woody and Idzik don't have the backbone to fire Rex. Same mediocrity bull **** giving in to the media and fans. So now when all the "experts" say next year Jets are going to be terrible and they go win 8 games and miss the playoffs for a 4th consecutive year will Rex be praised again for exceeding expectations? This narrative is complete bull****

    There are now multiple signs pointing to Rex Ryan returning as Jets HC next season, per sources; still some issues to work through, however.

    I understand that but the circumstances are different from the norm, this was always going to be complicated the minute we hired a new GM and forced a HC on him.

    As it stands they work well together, nothing wrong with Rex coaching his contract out and Idzik getting another years evaluation as to wheather this is the direction he wants to go in.

    Terrible idea… What about resigning his coaching staff. You think these guys want to sign on for multiple years not knowing the status of the HC they work for. Doesn't work this way in the NFL.

    Correct. If Rex is retained, he should be given an extension.

    Teams don't like to have "lame duck" coaches and the coaches don't like it either. Coaches can always be fired in any year. The only thing is the team pays them for it. It should not bother fans though since it's the owners money and doesn't count against the cap.

    Not to mention signing Free Agents… There is a right way to do things and a wrong way. I still feel like not cleaning house last year was the wrong way. Time to turn the page on that decision. However, not extending Rex if you keep him would just be another wrong decision from this organization.
