    According to various sources, Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan will become the next head coach of the New York Jets. Ryan will receive a four-year contract that is in line with other first-year head coaches that have been recently hired, but a Jets source said it was almost identical to the $11.5M deal that the Rams gave New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo on Saturday.

    According to ESPN.com, former Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher will not interview for the Jets head coaching position. Although he is interested in the Jets job, Cowher told the team he would not be a candidate because he would like to bring in his own personnel director. Jets owner Woody Johnson, however, plans to keep Mike Tannenbaum as his general manager.

    It did not take long for Woody Johnson and Co. to make the right decision and fire Eric Mangini whose third season with the New York Jets ended with an epic collapse and failure to make the playoffs. The Gang Green was 8-3 after 11 games this season but followed their early success with an inexplicable slide down the stretch, as they lost 4 out of the last 5 games.

    Mangini Has To Go Now!

    In just four weeks Eric Mangini’s Jets went from a Super Bowl contender to a lousy team that most likely won’t even make the playoffs. Following their rout of then undefeated Tennessee, the New York Jets were thrashed by the Denver Broncos, outplayed by the 49ers (4-9 at that time), barely beat the Buffalo Bills and finally yesterday lost to the Seattle Seahawks (3-11). The Gang Green had one of the easiest schedules in the NFL, they spent over $100M on free agents in the offseason, they have seven Pro Bowlers on their roster – what else does a team need to be a contender in this league? Head coach with a brain!
