Found July 27, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Rex Ryan has a prediction: If the New York Jets can draft South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, he won't be the coach. Ryan, considered by many to be in a make-or-break season, delivered a gem when asked Saturday how much of his daily discussions with general manager John Idzik involve looking beyond this season. ''It's safe to say I won't be here if we draft Clowney,'' a grinning Ryan said. ''I can just say that right now. I think I'm going to say that without hesitation.'' Clowney is the front-runner to be the No. 1 overall selection in next year's draft. Holding that top pick would likely mean the Jets had a terrible season. ''Shoot, that draft is miles away,'' a laughing Idzik said. ''That's pretty funny, though.''
