Jets Owner Is Content with Rex Ryan

Jets_Rex_Ryan_2012Jets owner Woody Johnson didnt delve too deeply into the future of his head coach, but after an offseason that felt like an inevitable final act for Rex Ryan, Johnson was openly supportive after a surprising 4-3 start.

Were happy with Rex, Johnson said, via Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. Coaches have to be good teachers and good leaders and I think hes both.

Johnson said hed reserve comment on Ryans future with the team until after the season. Much could change between now and then, but at the moment, Ryan has the Jets playing far above expectations, after an overtime win over their division rival Patriots.

Ryans contract runs through the 2014 season, meaning theyll have to make a call this offseason to avoid the always awkward lame duck season.
