Rex Ryan will be officially introduced as the next Jets coach at a press conference Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. The Jets sent out the following remarks by the involved parties:
“Rex is revered by his players and respected by his peers around the NFL for his innovative schemes,” Woody Johnson said. “There is no doubt in my mind that Rex has the expertise and instincts to build on the foundation that we have in place and take this franchise to the ranks of the NFL’s elite. He will bring an aggressive, physical brand of football that will captivate our fans and ignite their passion. I appreciate Mike Tannenbaum and all those involved for the time and energy they invested during this search. Thanks to their efforts, we got the right man for the job.”

About time Rex Ryan got a chance... posted on 01/20/2009
Even before he's introduced as the next New York Jets head coach and begins to assemble his staff, Rex Ryan has an influential assistant.
"We talk football all the time," Ryan's famous father, Buddy Ryan, said Monday.
Buddy Ryan was entertaining at his farmhouse in Shelbyville, Ky., and couldn't stay on the line. But the conversation lasted long enough for a proud father to dote on his son, who left the Baltimore Ravens to sign a four-year contract earlier in the day.
"He should've been a head coach in the league before this," Buddy Ryan said. "He'll be ready.
"I'm excited about it, especially with the Jets. That's my first team."
Buddy Ryan broke into the NFL as the Jets' defensive line coach from 1968 through 1975. He began under Weeb Ewbank, winning Super Bowl III on Joe Namath's guarantee.
Can Rex Ryan save Vernon Gholston? posted on 01/19/2009
The drafting of Vernon Gholston didn't seem like the right move to a lot of NFL analysts but fans saw it as the Jets finally adding a speedy pass rusher. I mean hey he was the only guy who seemed to know how to get past fellow AFC East Dolphin's 1st overall pick Jake Long in college. With the hiring of Ravens DC Rex Ryan, Jet fans have to be wondering if maybe this guy can get more out of Gholston. Everyone kept talking about how Gholston was a rare physical specimen and that he would take a little to develop but how long can New York fans/media be patient? Something like this just does not seem like it would have happned in Baltimore with their defense rarely leaving the top 10 in the NFL on an annual basis. It would be crazy to think Gholston will turn into Terrell Suggs over
