Jets will hold press conference next Tuesday

We won’t be getting any more daily updates about whether or not the Jets are going to hold a press conference.

The team announced Wednesday that owner Woody Johnson and coach Rex Ryan will meet the media next Tuesday at 11 a.m. ET. That will be the first time anyone from the Jets hierarchy comments publicly on the decision to fire General Manager Mike Tannenbaum and will presumably be the first public discussion about the future of the coaching staff. The futures of the team’s offensive and defensive coordinators are murky with Tony Sparano reportedly set to be fired and Mike Pettine operating without a contract beyond this season.

Ryan is believed to be out of town and reportedly told his assistants that no official moves with the staff are likely to happen until the team has a new general manager. The team has started lining up candidates for the job and there’s a chance they could have someone in place by next week’s presser.

The NFL requires teams to hold a press conference with its owner, coach, general manager or president within a week of the end of the regular season. The Jets will be outside of that timeline once they finally do meet with reporters and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that the league is looking into it.

    the problem with constantly running your mouth is how noticeable you are when you’re quiet!

    The fact that Rex is around is a sure sign that Woody couldn’t find anyone else who was willing to come in and fix this mess, especially with a QB like Sanchez still in tow.

    Unless it’s to say they fired Ryan, who cares when they have it?

    Looking like sore losers.

    My interpretation of this is that they have something in the works but that it won’t ready to announce until Tuesday. I’m guessing they’re working out contract terms with a new GM and will make that announcement on Tuesday.

    Rex guarantees there will be a press conference next Tuesday!

    Hopefully the press conference will be to announce they fired Ryan, cut dirty Sanchez and named Tebow the 2013 s trading qb.. otherwise don’t bother

    you mean they’ll open up the 3 ring circus? ha

    My theory is Woody gave Rex a week to try and find a GM who, when hired, wouldn’t fire him. So Rex is traveling the US looking for this needle in a haystack!

    What kind of organization fires a loyal GM and does not address the media? No class.

  12. fdugrad says: Jan 2, 2013 7:59 PM

    One of the FIRST moves the new GM could and SHOULD make is to send REX packing.

    Who’s the next GM? That will say a lot about where the Jets are headed.
