Baltimore defensive coordinator expected to be formally introduced as New York’s new head coach at a news conference Wednesday.
The New York Jets reached an agreement with Rex Ryan on Monday to make the Baltimore defensive coordinator their head coach, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.
The person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the four-year deal was not yet finalized, said it was expected to be done in the next few days.
The 46-year-old Mr. Ryan replaces the fired Eric Mangini. Mr. Ryan takes over a team that started last season 8-3 but missed the playoffs with quarterback Brett Favre after losing four of its last five games.
Mr. Ryan is expected to be formally introduced at a news conference Wednesday at the Jets’ facility in Florham Park, N.J.
