The Jets have fined head coach Rex Ryan $50,000 for making an obscene gesture at a mixed martial arts event last weekend in Miami.

A cell phone had captured the gesture, which Ryan made after he was booed by fans at the event, which was held at the home of the NHL's Florida Panthers.

"It was stupid and inappropriate," Ryan said in a previous statement released by the Jets. "I wouldn't accept that type of behavior from one of the coaches or players, and it's unacceptable from me. I apologize to the Jets' organization, the National Football League and NFL fans everywhere."

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum also issued a statement shortly after the incident, saying, "Rex showed extremely poor judgment and his conduct was inappropriate. He knows he was wrong, has apologized and we have accepted his apology."
