Ryan had one year remaining on a deal he reworked in 2010, worth about $3 million annually. Ryan's new contract keeps him in New York at least through the 2016 season, according to ESPN.
Ryan, 51, has gone 42-38 since his arrival to New York in 2009, not including a 4-2 record in the postseason. Ryan made the AFC Championship in his first two seasons but he failed to take the Jets to the playoffs in the past three seasons.
After the Jets' final game when they beat the Miami Dolphins to finish 8-8, team owner Woody Johnson announced he was bringing back Ryan for the 2014 season.
