Jets' owner Woody Johnson told reporters that head coach Rex Ryan will return next season, reports ESPN New York's Rich Cimini.

Ryan failed to make the playoffs for the third straight season, and led the team to an 8-8 record this season. He reportedly told the team last week that he expected to be fired at the end of the season.
