The New York Jets and head coach Rex Ryan have agreed to a multi-year contract extension according to Adam Schefter.

Schefter tweeted today: "Jets and head coach Rex Ryan have reached agreement on a multi-year extension, according to team and league sources."

Ryan has been the head coach of the Jets for five seasons, guiding the team to a 8-8 record last year.

The 2014 season would have been the last on Ryan's contract and with three consecutive losing seasons, it was thought that Ryan's job could be in doubt. 

There is no word yet on the length of the contract nor the financial details but it was rumoured that the deal could take the Jets through the 2016 season.

Head coaches in the NFL rarely coach into the last year of their contract because of the 'lame-duck' effect and it seems that new Jets general manager John Idzik was not prepared to take that risk.

Ryan's career head coaching record is 42-38 he was also an assistant at the Baltimore Ravens from 2005-2008.
