Rex Ryan fined $100,000 for profanities
NEW YORK (AP) — New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has been fined $100,000 for his postgame use of profanity that was picked up on video last Sunday.
After the Jets beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-13, Ryan could be seen yelling while walking onto the field to meet Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. He was upset by Steelers safety Michael Mitchell leaping over the offensive line while the Jets were doing a kneel-down at the end of the game.
Ryan has been fined twice in the past for public obscenities. He was fined $50,000 by the Jets in 2010 after making an obscene gesture at a fan at a mixed-martial arts fight, and $75,000 by the NFL the next year for cursing at a fan.
Ryan is the third NFL coach to be fined $100,000.
