Goodbye to Rex Ryan

January 19, 2009 |

Not that it is a big surprise this morning, but several outlets are reporting that Rex Ryan has agreed to become the new head coach of the New York Jets. There was belief that last night as soon as the game ended , that Ryan would soon field a phone call from the Jets, and apparently that happened.Rex’s representatives and the Jets are finalizing the paperwork, but it is expected to be announced later this afternoon that he has been hired.

It will be interesting to see what members of the Ravens staff he is allowed to take by Coach Harbaugh. It is believed to be that Ryan would take outside linebackers coach Mike Pettine with him to the big apple.


Also, I expect that we will hear in the near future that George Kokinis will become the new General Manager of the Cleveland Browns
