NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets have hired Seattle Seahawks executive John Idzik to be their general manager, ending a search that lasted nearly three weeks.

Idzik, the Seahawks' vice president of football administration, was selected Friday over Pittsburgh executive Omar Khan and Jets assistant GM Scott Cohen by owner Woody Johnson and team president Neil Glat.

Idzik's primary strengths include managing salaries and the salary cap, but he has also worked in player personnel. He has been with the Seahawks the past six seasons after previously working in the front office for Tampa Bay and Arizona.

Idzik's father, John, was a longtime NFL coach, including a stint as the Jets' offensive coordinator from 1976-79.
