New York Jets coach Rex Ryan will not be fined by the NFL for making an obscene gesture at a mixed-martial- arts event last weekend.

League spokesman Greg Aiello said yesterday that Ryan would not face additional discipline by the NFL after the Jets fined him $50,000 on Tuesday.

The coach was caught on a cell phone camera flipping his middle finger at a fan during the MMA competition in Sunrise, Fla., on Saturday night. The image of Ryan quickly spread across the Internet and made its way onto the back pages of New York tabloids.

Ryan apologized the next day in a statement, calling his actions “stupid and inappropriate.”
