FOXSports.com has learned that the Jets have fired head coach Eric Mangini.

Players began getting calls from team officials this morning informing them of the move, telling them that it will be announced at 10 a.m. ET and that GM Mike Tannenbaum, who appears to be safe, will be addressing the team at noon.

The Jets suffered an abysmal collapse, which unfortunately is nothing new for the organization.

Owner Woody Johnson, following yesterday's loss to the Dolphins, was visibly upset and agitated, a definite swerve for the normally even-keeled owner.

The Jets started the season 8-3 under quarterback Brett Favre, but went 1-4 in their final five games and failed to make the playoffs for the second straight year despite a massive offseason spending spree.

The 37-year-old Mangini was 23-26 in three seasons in his first head coaching job.

The Jets were in first place in the AFC East before fading in the stretch.

"For the current New York Jets organization, we've made the decision to move on," owner Woody Johnson said at a news conference Monday morning. "It's a judgment call."

Information from the The Associated Press was used in this report.
