Rex Ryan is expected to return to the New York Jets

Ryan, who is 4-2 in the playoffs, is the best coach for the New York Jets.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Rex Ryan’s job status “has turned from negative to positive” and “signs are pointing” to him returning for a sixth campaign as the New York Jets’ head coach.

The 51-year-old Ryan, who has gone 41-38 with Gang Green since being hired in January 2009, recently told players that he expects to get axed.

However, Ryan and GM John Idzik met this week and an announcement could be made within 24 hours.

New York is 7-8 and has failed to qualify for the playoffs for three consecutive seasons.

Regardless, Ryan has been handcuffed by the atrocious performances of Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith and his squads have primarily overachieved.

In retrospect, it is borderline astonishing that Ryan managed to guide two Jets teams to the AFC Championship.

With a solid quarterback and effective supporting cast on offense, Buddy’s son can absolutely lead New York to their first crown in 45 years.

Now blessed with a standout front seven, Gang Green could be a juggernaut next autumn if Idzik lands suitable weapons this offseason.

Cocky, brash and often profane, Ryan’s always going to be a magnet for critics.

Still, no matter what occurs tomorrow at Sun Life Stadium, Rex Ryan is an advanced leader who deserves to remain in the swamps of Jersey.
