The New York Jets' search for a general manager is over.
The other candidates in the search were informed that Idzik was to be offered the job.
Idzik was put on the road to do some college scouting the last couple years by Seahawks GM John Schneider, with an eye toward taking this next step.
He also has a wealth of experience with rebuilding efforts, having been part of Schneider's project in Seattle and also Tony Dungy's reworking of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization in the mid-1990s.
The Jets told candidates that they would have power over the 53-man roster and final say on all personnel decisions. After being out for the first set of interviews, Rex Ryan was there for the second round.
Indications are that owner Woody Johnson will retain power over Ryan's fate after 2013, and that likely won't be left solely up to the GM.
