When Doug Marrone opted out of his deal with the Bills, many thought he instantly became the top candidate. Jets owner Woody Johnson did little to tone down that speculation.
Doug Marrone, head coach of the New York Jets? It’s possible.
He’s an offensive coach. He’s colorful enough, but not so outrageous that he’s going to create a constant media stir. And, oh, yeah, he’s already won the big hardware with Tampa Bay.
The search is on for Woody Johnson and the New York Jets.
Woody Johnson is open to bringing back Darrelle Revis. One problem for the New York Jets owner: the Pro Bowl cornerback is under contract for another year with the New England Patriots.
Johnson fired coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik on Monday, one day after completing one of the most disappointing seasons in franchise history.
It appears Jets owner Woody Johnson is ready to go to the ends of the Earth to turn this franchise around after four straight non-playoff seasons.
Rex Ryan was felled by his own hubris. His best characteristics — his confidence, unwillingness to change, and monolithic ear to his own voice and only tuning fork — are what made him overtly unadaptable to progress.
According to a report, Casserly has reached out to former Packers general manager Ron Wolf. The 75-year-old would also serve as a consultant in the event that wholesale changes are on the way.
Woody Johnson has some tough decisions to make as the New York Jets look towards the future.
Rex Ryan still pictures himself raising the Lombardi Trophy as a Super Bowl champion. Whether he gets another opportunity to try to deliver that title with the New York Jets remains to be seen.
There have been conflicting reports about the GM’s fate. But according to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta, the front office has been a mess since Idzik has taken over.
One more week. One final game. That’s all that might be left in Rex Ryan’s tenure as coach of the Jets, with his future uncertain beyond Sunday’s season finale.
Is total regime change on the horizon? It’s starting to look like it.
This isn’t just about Fan Guy or the Jets’ current plunge down the rungs of relevance. This isn’t even about the gritty game they played Sunday. It’s about the zero sum reality of pro football and the Jets’ unwillingness to abide by it.
