So long, SUNY Cortland.

The Jets announced on Tuesday they will hold this year's training camp at their Florham Park facility.

"SUNY Cortland felt like home because of the tremendous local support we received during our time there," Jets owner Woody Johnson said, via the team's web site. "President Erik Bitterbaum and the university staff, as well as the families and businesses of Central New York, all went above and beyond to embrace our organization and create a comfortable environment for our team and fans. They always will be a part of our Jets family."

Hofstra was the site of their camp until 2008 before the team moved to Florham Park. Stony Brook University was given strong consideration in 2009, but Cortland ultimately was selected as the team's training camp locale. The Jets have held training camp in Cortland every year since 2009, except for the lockout-shortened 2011 season. But in January 2014, they announced they would consider other options for this summer.

Farmingdale State College had been on the team's short list of possible locations, but the Long Island campus was ruled out in February.

"We are very grateful for the outstanding support of our fans in Cortland and to fans who made and enjoyed trips to the area," said Jets president Neil Glat. "Our hope is that our training in Florham Park will allow additional fans to experience the fun and excitement of a Jets Training Camp this year."

According to the team's web site, 21 of the 32 teams conduct camp at their own practice facility.
