Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post reports that Jets HC Rex Ryan bumped into scouts and coaches around the league who informed him that GM John Idzik had been telling people that he plans on replacing Ryan after the season.
“Did he think that wasn’t going to get back to me?” Ryan reportedly told a confidant.
Cannizzaro adds that sources have said that Ryan is prepared to go straight to doing television if he’s fired by the Jets.
Ryan told reporters after Monday night’s blowout loss to the Bills that he still expects to be the team’s head coach for the remainder of the season.
“One thing I know, unless it changes drastically, I will be the head coach here for the next five weeks,” Ryan said on Monday.
