Jets coach Rex Ryan emphatically denied a Daily News report that said he wants to be fired if the team does not make changes to its offense.
Ryan first addressed his team Friday morning and got very emotional, according to multiple people in the room. At one point, he even cried. He told the team the report was "all lies" and said he's spent all his time building this team and he would never want to leave it.
A few hours later, Ryan addressed the media and said the story was totally "untrue." He was particularly annoyed at the idea that he'd rather coach somewhere else in 2013.
"That's total garbage, that's garbage," Ryan said. "That's not the case at all. The premise that I'd rather go somewhere else to coach somebody's football team. No way. That's not it. I'd rather coach my players and my team. New England Patriots, anybody else, I don't care. I want this team. This is my team."
