NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It certainly appears that Jets head coach Rex Ryan will be fired after the season, and second-year general manager John Idzik might also get the ax.
In anticipation of major organizational changes, it was reported earlier this week that owner Woody Johnson is lining up longtime NFL executive Charley Casserly as a consultant.
And Johnson might look for even more guidance.
According to the New York Daily News, 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.
Wolf was the Packers’ GM from 1991-2001, building the team that won Super Bowl XXXI.
Prior to joining the Packers, Wolf was a director of player personnel with the Jets. He’s also worked for the Raiders and Buccaneers, and was most recently a consultant for the Chargers in 2013.
The newspaper reports that the second consultant hired by New York will not be former Jets and Giants coach Bill Parcells.
“I just wish both guys the best, man,” offensive guard Willie Colon said in regard to Ryan and Idzik, according to the New York Daily News. “It’s a tough business and I know both their hearts was in it this year. It’s rough to see everything going to fruition.”
The Jets will play their final game of the season on Sunday against the division-rival Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium.
Gang Green is 3-12 and will miss the postseason for the fourth consecutive time.
