Rex Ryan to Pen a Book for a 2011 Release

Rex Ryan, already headed to HBO, is writing a book, too. The brash, charismatic Jets coach is penning a book that will combine autobiography and football strategy. Doubleday acquired the untitled book’s North American rights and plans to publish it in spring 2011 — potentially not long after the Super Bowl win that Ryan wants.

Ryan, whose Jets will be featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” training-camp series this summer, will write the book with Don Yaeger, a former Sports Illustrated editor and author of books on former NFL stars Warren Moon and Walter Payton. Jason Kaufman, vice president and executive editor of Doubleday, said Ryan “has such a powerful and unique leadership style” and he expects the book “to demonstrate how you lead in certain circumstances.”
