According to various reports, ESPN & WFAN Radion among them, Rex Ryan has accepted an offer to become the head coach of the N.Y. Jets.



New York, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Jets are reportedly set to name Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan as their next head coach.

Multiple reports circulated after the Ravens lost 23-14 at Pittsburgh in the
AFC Championship Game that Ryan would replace Eric Mangini, who was fired following the season and later became head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

The New York Daily News reported Ryan won't be introduced at a news conference by the Jets until Wednesday because of Tuesday's presidential inauguration. The newspaper reports Ryan met with Jets brass on January 11 in a five-hour interview in Baltimore.

The 46-year-old Ryan has never been the head coach of a team in college or the pros. He's been with the Ravens since 1999 on the defensive side of the ball.

"Rex Ryan is going to be a great head coach in the National Football League," said Ravens head coach John Harbaugh after Sunday's loss to the Steelers. "If somebody is wise enough to make that decision here shortly, they'll have a great head football coach. I support him completely in that. He should have an opportunity to be a head coach very soon and he's very deserving of that."

This past season, the Jets (9-7) lost four of their final five games, spiraling from an opportunity at the AFC's top seed to a seat on the sidelines
for the playoffs.

Mangini finished with a 23-25 mark and one playoff appearance in his three seasons at the helm, making the postseason in his first season and overseeing a dismal 4-12 campaign in 2007.

Going to miss Rex Ryan . He did a great job with the Ravens' defense this season considering all the injuries ( NT Gregg, CB C-MAC, Safety Landry, Ed Reed etc )

I wish him - Good Luck with Jets
