The New York Jets and owner Woody Johnson announced that they would keep Rex Ryan on as head coach. The Jets ended the season winning three of the last four including a win over the Miami Dolphins who were fighting for a playoff berth.

“I love being the head coach of the New York Jets, plain and simple,” Ryan said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. “I never wanted to go out this way, another losing season or something like that.”

Johnson praised Ryan and his staff’s 3-1 finish to the season.

“A lot of it is due to our coach, Rex Ryan,” Johnson said. “It’s an amazing tribute to Rex and his staff.”

Players agreed with the decision.

“Personally, I think it’s the right decision,” offensive tackle Austin Howard said. “Rex has really started something. He’s had his image for this team, and it’s starting to come to fruition.”

Whether the fans agree is another story. Johnson sent season ticket holders an e-mail explaining the decision, which you can see below:
