Current leader will guide the NFL side until the end of the 2016 season.
Coach Rex Ryan has signed an extension to his contract with the New York Jets even after they failed to reach the National Football League playoffs.
Ryan reportedly inked a multi-year deal to remain through at least the 2016 season with heavy incentives for bringing playoff wins to a Jets team that last won a playoff game in the 2010 season.
Jets owner Woody Johnson and general manager John Idzik told players after their season-ending 20-7 win at Miami last month that Ryan would be remaining as coach, hinting that they planned to stretch a deal that had one season remaining.
The Jets won three of their final four games to finish 8-8, giving Ryan a record of 46-40 in five seasons guiding the Jets, who were one win shy of the Super Bowl in the 2009 and 2010 seasons.
Ryan became the first coach to win eight games with rookie quarterbacks in separate seasons, Mark Sanchez having gone 9-7 in 2009 and Geno Smith going 8-8 this past season.
