Jets coach Rex Ryan has been fined $75,000 by the NFL for using profanity while angrily responding to a fan at halftime of New York's game against New England last Sunday.

The 49-second video shot by a fan at MetLife Stadium, shows the Jets walking off the field and someone yelling: "Hey, Rex, Belichick is better than you," referring to Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

Ryan looks up and tells the fan to "shut up" while using an obscenity.

Ryan later apologized for the incident. It's not the first time Ryan is in trouble because of his mouth.

He was fined $50,000 by the Jets in February 2010 after he was caught on a cellphone camera giving the middle finger to a fan during a mixed martial arts event in Florida.
