The fallout from the Jets' disastrous season hasn't only had an effect on the futures of their two high-profile quarterbacks.

Mike Pettine may, too, be on his way out.

The defensive coordinator turned down a contract extension from the Jets, a source confirmed. The Jets, however, have declined comment.

Pettine, Rex Ryan's right-hand man since their days together in Baltimore, oversees a defense that is 29th in the league in rushing defense, 20th in points allowed and second overall against the pass. The Jets are 6-8 heading into their final two games and have already been eliminated from the playoffs for a second straight season.
