Matt Cavanaugh will not return as the New York Jets' quarterbacks coach after four seasons with the team.
Cavanaugh's contract was due to expire in a few weeks and he was told Monday he would not be part of Rex Ryan's staff next season. Cavanaugh was responsible for the development of Mark Sanchez, who took a step back in his fourth season and was benched late in the year.
The Daily News first reported that Cavanaugh would not be back.
It is the first of many likely changes on Ryan's staff. Special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff retired, and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine turned down a contract extension earlier in the season. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano might be out after one season.

Even when the Jets aren’t playing, the team manages to remain a main topic of conversation in New York by keeping its name in the city’s papers, even if the news of the day has absolutely nothing to do with actual football. Just last week, a photo published by the New York Daily News of head coach Rex Ryan sunning himself while on a vacation on Prairie Island in the Bahamas...
When the New York Jets fired quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh on Monday, the seeds were planted for the removal of offensive coordinator Tony Sparano.

After being photographed shirtless on a beach resort last week, Rex Ryan finally addressed the New York media and answered questions about a peculiar tattoo spotted on his right arm, one that depicts his wife wearing nothing but a Mark Sanchez jersey in a pose that looks strangely similar to “Tebowing.”

He’s had it...
Rex Ryan continues to leave an indelible mark on the New York Jets.
But the head coach also took time at the team's news conference on Tuesday to address his much-discussed tattoo of his wife wearing a Sanchez jersey, something photographers documented while he was in the Bahamas.
The coach said he has had it on his right arm for nearly three years, and was able to joke about...
Rex Ryan covered up his tacky tattoo of his wife clad only in a Mark Sanchez jersey with an even less subtle "I heart me" T-shirt.
Yesterday, the New York Jets head coach was spotted at the same Bahamas resort wearing the faded black tee shielding the public from the infamous ink on his right arm.
At least this fashion miscue can be removed without a laser.

Dez Bryant is finally getting that pesky finger taken care of. I have already given out the trophy for Breakout WR Of The Year to Dez, so you know I think highly of him from a fantasy perspective. The fact that he played through a broken finger and went off doing so is unbelievable from a teammate perspective. He’s going to be in my top 3 for 2013...
It’s not every coordinator firing that KSK bothers to cover, but not every coordinator is Rob Ryan, a man who never stopped rocking, being real or doing eightballs in the first seat of his 1999 Ford Econoline conversion van. This off-season, both Ryan brothers were almost out of jobs, which would have left this a much poorer league for the sake of depravity. That might sit well...
The New York Jets are continuing to clean house. Today, the rebuilding management fired their offensive coordinator, Tony Sparano.
The move was not surprising considering the Jets terrible season. Since Sparano was hired, many wondered if he was right for the job. With a background as an offensive line coach and no experience with quarterbacks, this was yet another move by the...
Jerry Jones promised changes were coming to the Dallas Cowboys, and they’re starting to trickle in.
The Cowboys fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan on Tuesday, according to ESPN.com. Dallas went 8-8 during the 2012 season. The Cowboys’ defense was ranked 19th in total yards, 19th against the pass and 22nd against the run.
Ryan is the twin brother of New York Jets head coach...
