The Jets wasted little time in offering Rex Ryan the head coaching gig. In fact, Ryan accepted the job roughly an hour after the Ravens had been eliminated from the playoffs. It's good to know what you want, I guess.
And while owner Woody Johnson hasn't given the new guy free run of the place (pretty sure general manager Mike Tannenbaum wouldn't go for that), the Newark Star-Ledger's Dave Hutchinson writes that "Ryan is expected to have input on whether Brett Favre returns next season." Before adding, "... but it appears the ultimate decision will belong to Favre, especially with owner ... Johnson's seeming desire to want him back."
