After seemingly being on the hot seat for the entirety of the 2013 season, Ryan led the Jets to a surprising 8-8 record, overcoming the struggles of a not-so-talented roster, up-and-down rookie quarterback and unbelievably low expectations.
While many believed that GM John Idzik was prepared to move on after the season, it was announced in an emotional Jets locker room immediately following New York's Week 17 victory over the Miami Dolphins that Rex was going to stay on as the head coach.
ESPN is reporting that Ryan will be under contract until "at least" 2016 and will be heavily incentivized for postseason wins.
