After Sunday’s 24-13 victory over the Browns, Jets coach Rex Ryan wouldn’t discuss a report from Jay Glazer of FOX Sports that he told the team on Saturday night that “word on the street” was that he was going to be fired at the end of the season.
Ryan faced more questions about that report when he spoke to reporters on Monday and some about Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News’ report that Ryan was especially fired up because he’d heard the Jets had started talking to potential replacements. Ryan said the only thing on his mind right now was the Week 17 game against the Dolphins.
“I’m not disgruntled about anything,” Ryan said, via Mehta’s colleague Seth Walder. “You know again guys I’m not going there. My focus is just on this Miami thing.”
Ryan wouldn’t say whether he’s spoken to owner Woody Johnson or General Manager John Idzik about his future, but we should have a pretty good idea about where things stand a week from now.
