JETS FIRE MIKE TANNENBAUM, REX RYAN SAFE AS HEAD COACH -
The New York Jets have informed general manager Mike Tannenbaum (pictured center) that he will not return to the team next season.
In a statement released Monday morning, Jets chairman and CEO Woody Johnson (pictured right) called the 2012 season a ‘disappointment.’
“This morning, I informed Mike Tannenbaum that he will not return for the 2013 season. Mike devoted 15 years of service to the Jets, and I want to thank him for his hard work and dedication. Although he helped guide us to two consecutive AFC Championship games, we are not where we want to be, and a new General Manager will be critical to getting this team back on the right track,” the statement said.
The Jets will begin searching for a replacement GM immediately.
Johnson also made it clear that coach Rex Ryan would remain with the team.
“I believe that he has the passion, the talent, and the drive to successfully lead our team.”
