Jets players erupt in locker room finding out Rex Ryan will be back (Video)

The New York Jets ended the season winning three of the last four including a win over the Miami Dolphins who were fighting for a playoff berth. Afterwards, Jets owner Woody Johnson praised Ryan and his staff’s 3-1 finish to the season and announced he would remain with the team in the 2014 season.

“A lot of it is due to our coach, Rex Ryan,” Johnson said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. “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.”

Obviously Ryan was thrilled.

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

A video crew was inside the locker room when Johnson informed the team of his decision and watching the players react is priceless.
