After a season in which the Jets finished 8-8 and head coach Rex Ryan said he expected to be let go during the offseason, the team has reportedly reach an agreement on a multiyear extension to keep Ryan in New York, according to a tweet on Thursday afternoon from Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Terms of the agreement were not immediately known, but Ryan was set to enter the sixth and final year of the contract he had signed in 2009 when he came to the Jets. The 51-year-old has gone 42-38 since his arrival to New York, not including a 4-2 record in the postseason. He had made the AFC Championship in his first two seasons at the helm but has failed to take the Jets to the playoffs in the past three seasons.

In December, team owner Woody Johnson had said he will bring back Ryan for the 2014 season but that he would only get a one-year extension beyond next season.
