Woody Johnson returning to US to take back charge of Jets

As the Jets introduced a new coach, an old owner was flying home to take charge.

Woody Johnson was on a plane returning to the United States, Christopher Johnson said Thursday, after completing his position as ambassador to the United Kingdom during the administration of President Donald Trump. President Biden was inaugurated Wednesday and government positions are turning over.

Christopher Johnson, who acted as the Jets’ principal owner in Woody’s absence, announced the change atop the structure Thursday during the news conference to introduce new coach Robert Saleh. Christopher will become vice chairman of the Jets and remain heavily involved, but Woody reassumes principal ownership duties, including maintaining final say on decisions.
