CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora previously reported Jets general manager John Idzik has pondered replacing Ryan:

Idzik has considered other options for a head coach, according to sources who have been in contact with him, and has compiled a list of possible candidates (Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and Seattle offensive coordinator Darrel Bevell among them). If left entirely to his own devises, these sources believe Idzik would move on from Ryan. However, the Jets could finish .500, and second in their division, with a win at Miami Sunday and the team has far outperformed expectations. Ryan has support from players, fans and media, which isn't lost on owner Woody Johnson.

[...]

Ryan has been to two AFC title games in New York and, in his own way, increased the relevance of the team on a national scale, which is again, not lost on ownership. Ryan has one year left on his deal, and while playing out a lame-duck scenario would not be ideal, it is a potential option.
