Brian Schottenheimer's contract doesn't expire anytime soon. Neither does Mike Pettine's.

The Jets extended the deals of both coordinators back in the offseason through at "least the 2012 season," though word is now just beginning to trickle out about the moves. Schottenheimer's secret extension, first reported by ESPN New York.com, was confirmed through a source, and the same source said the Jets also added time to Pettine's contract.

Schottenheimer isn't exactly a fan favorite, and seems to draw their ire each season. The Jets are ranked No. 22 in the league in offense, averaging just 314.5 yards per game, and their passing attack has been anemic, with QB Mark Sanchez posting only 200.1 passing yards per contest.

But Rex Ryan really likes Schottenheimer, and it's looking more and more like Schottenheimer isn't going to be shuffling off out of Florham Park in the immediate future.
