FLORHAM PARK, N. J. - The New York Jets have fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum and said coach Rex Ryan will be back next season.
The Jets finished 6-10 and were in constant turmoil from the moment they acquired Tim Tebow in a trade before the season.
Jets owner Woody Johnson said in a statement Monday that "like all Jets fans, I am disappointed with this year's results."
Tannenbaum, who signed off on Tebow trade, has two years left on his contract. Tebow was brought in as a backup for Mark Sanchez but was expected to play a key role in certain offensive schemes. It never worked out.
