By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com

Bill Hughan, the Jets' head strength and conditioning coach, has been fired after two seasons in his current position, a league source told ESPN Insider Adam Schefter.

Injuries, particularly of the soft-tissue variety, were an ongoing theme, dating to last spring's minicamp and OTA practices. The issue carried into training camp, hitting the receiving corps in particular. Rex Ryan was exasperated, to the point where he tweaked the practice schedule to allow for more stretching time.

The Jets were crushed by injuries in 2012, losing two of their best players -- Darrelle Revis(knee) and Santonio Holmes (foot), both of whom suffered non-contact injuries.

All told, the Jets' starters had 54 games-lost due to injuries. The team's injury rate for the entire roster was the highest since 2005, according to the Jets' in-house statistics. Former GM Mike Tannenbaum said recently the team was planning to conduct an internal study on the problem in the offseason.

Hughan was hired in 2011. He replaced Sal Alosi, who resigned under pressure after his infamous tripping incident in December 2010.

I assume it was decided by Tanny and team earlier.
Woody probably will let new GM and Rex decide fates of real coaches

That should just about fix the team...I remember when Nick Saban came in to coach the Dolphins he even fired Father Nick who had been there since before the undefeated season-now when the Jets go THAT far then and only then would it be considered (as 8-0 would say) "sweeping changes"

Did seem a little more rampant than usual the past couple of seasons. I don't even know why I'm pretending to remember the 2011 season, but that sounds right.

Honestly, Strength Coach is waaayyy more important than what many of the posters here are letting on. Next to the HC/OC/DC, I'd say that dude is the next on the list.
