NEW YORK – May 31, 2012 – New York Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan, New York Rangers Coach John Tortorella and I’ll Have Another’s trainer Doug O’Neill are scheduled to join Bob Costas, a 23-time Emmy Award-winning journalist and one of America’s preeminent interviewers, on the latest edition of Costas Tonight, a 60-minute interview program, to air on Monday, June 4 immediately following Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on the NBC Sports Network.
Costas will discuss the Jets off-season with Ryan, including the addition of back-up quarterback Tim Tebow and how Ryan sees Tebow’s role with the team in 2012.
