Rex Ryan on the hiring of Marty Mornhinweg Dan Leberfeld

For the first time, Rex Ryan commented on the hiring of Marty Mornhinweg as the Jets’ offensive coordinator.

“I thought it was important to get a guy with a proven track record as a quarterback developer, a proven track record statistically, a guy who has been there and done it, a proven track record of a play caller and we got all of those with Marty,” Ryan said on Thursday.

“I brought in several candidates, a lot of great coaches, but for us, I thought Marty was the guy that I thought was the best fit for us. I can’t wait to get out there and see how our offense looks. Will it look different? Yes, it will.”
