Rex Ryan’s roller coaster ride as head coach of the New York Jets apparently will be coming to an end in a couple of weeks.
Per a report from Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer, Ryan told his team that he expects to be fired following the season:
The Jets have failed to show significant progress this season with Ryan as their coach. Rookie QB Geno Smith has been slow to develop, and the team has lost for of their last five games, eliminating them from playoff contention.
Although Ryan had success by reaching the AFC Championship game in each of his first two seasons but the last two have seen the Jets regress to one of the league’s bottom tier teams despite having a solid defense. It’s simply time for the two sides to part ways.
