Trump wants Jets owner, former Dodgers co-owner as US envoys

Previous year he was named a co-leader of Trump's national fundraising team. So, in this case, we will sign up for addition by subtraction. If Bowles does not coach up to the front office's standards in 2017, then Woody and Christopher will have a decision to make.

Woody Johnson has been married twice and had had five children.

The White House announced Thursday that Jets owner Woody Johnson will be nominated to serve as the United States' ambassador to the United Kingdom. "His patriotism and commitment to our country have always been a passion of his", Christopher Johnson said in a statement, per ESPN.

After Thursday's announcement, Johnson will need to be confirmed by the Senate before taking up residency in Winfield House, the tony mansion in central London where US ambassadors live and liase with one of America's closest allies.

Like Mr Trump, the 70-year-old hails from New Yorker and comes from a wealthy family.

The Senate must confirm the nominations.

President Donald Trump is stirring a potential shakeup for the New York Jets. In that role, Christopher will directly oversee all day-to-day team operations.

"We are looking forward to working with the new USA ambassador once that is confirmed", May's spokesperson said Friday.

The businessman, who bought the American football team (NFL) in 2000, also served on his inaugural committee.

Woody Johnson, now 70, and his family purchased the Jets on January 18, 2000. "We could not be more excited for him and his family", Jets President Neil Glat said in the release.
