To the surprise of no one, the Jets have fired offensive coordinator Tony Sparano.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen first reported the news.
Sparano's one and only season with the Jets was a disappointing one, as the offense finished the season ranked 30th in the league.
The Jets -- who have yet to respond for comment -- now will have to find a new offensive coordinator, in addition to a new general manager and quarterbacks coach.
Even when the Jets' offense struggled, head coach Rex Ryan maintained Sparano was the right man for the job.
"Without question, I believe this is an outstanding football coach," Ryan said in November of Sparano, who replaced former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. "He's been a head coach. Going up against him, I knew what we would get, the kind of mentality he has and we have it. He’s a guy that really understands the game, is passionate and is a tireless worker. He’s also a guy that I lean on a bit, having a former head coaching background. He’s been a huge help. I knew he would be and I knew he was a guy that I really wanted."
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Sparano was informed of his firing Monday night during a meeting with owner Woody Johnson and Ryan.
Speaking of Johnson and Ryan, they're scheduled to address the media today in Florham Park -- eight days after their season-end press conference on Dec. 31 was postponed.
