The Jackson Clarion-Ledger relays the rumor that UK is supposedly interested in talking to New York Jets head football coach Rex Ryan to see if he's like to have the job. Yes, the 3-5 NY Jets head coach Rex Ryan. He of the Mark Sanchez-Tim Tebow quarterback controversy Rex Ryan.
This one reeks of "the voices in your head don't count as reliable sources." But hey, at least it's imaginative.

Joker Phillips addressed the media on Tuesday for the first time since it was announced that he would not be back as the Wildcats' coach next season.
You just had to expect Rex Ryan would weigh in on this one — pun very much intended. Get it? “Weigh” in? Because he dropped a lot of weight in the offseason.
Moving on from bad puns, yesterday we reported that, along with Bill Belichick, Ryan was voted the most overrated coach in the NFL by a Sporting News poll which took the pulse of players. Given Ryan’s penchant for opening...
Rex Ryan was confident, but blunt as he approached his first press conference back from the bye week.
"We're not where we want to be, we're not even close. We're not even sniffing the playoffs, we're not sniffing anything right now, but I want to get there, man," Ryan said. "I'm excited about the prospects in front of us."
Ryan said that...
I admit that I can often get carried away when it comes to talking about New York Jets head coach, Rex Ryan. I call him a loudmouth. I have said that he has no idea what he is doing. I have referred to him as overrated.
As it turns out, I am not alone. The NFL players happen to agree with my comments and feelings toward Ryan.
At the midseason point of the 2012 NFL season, the Sporting...

When approached for comment about Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez being voted the two most overrated players in the league, Jets coach Rex Ryan struggled to come up with one.
