The Jets have announced this afternoon that their two football leaders, general manager Mike Tannenbaum and head coach Rex Ryan, have signed contract extensions that will carry them both through the 2014 season.
Tannenbaum, who signed a five-year extension in June, joined the Jets in 1997 and was hired by owner Woody Johnson to take over the GM duties in 2006.
Ryan, brought aboard by Johnson and Tannenbaum as the Jets head coach in January 2009, signed a two-year extension today.
Update, 5:20 p.m.: “Our franchise is heading in the right direction and I believe that continuity is important,” Johnson said in a statement released later this afternoon. “Mike and Rex have demonstrated the passion, commitment and expertise to get us to our ultimate goal — winning a Super Bowl.”
