New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan Guest Stars In ‘CSI:NY’

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is starring in a new television series, and this one is fiction.

Ryan still plays himself in an episode of “CSI: NY” shot Wednesday in Los Angeles. CBS says Ryan and Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum appear in a scene with actors Gary Sinise and Eddie Cahill that is scheduled to air in the spring.

Ryan became a national TV sensation before this past season with his curse-filled turn on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” reality show.

Ryan is keeping alive what apparently is a new tradition for Jets coaches: Predecessor Eric Mangini made a cameo on “The Sopranos” in 2007.
