A little more than a week removed from being fired from his head coaching position with the Jets, Rex Ryan has drawn considerable interest around the NFL and beyond.
“The two top candidates in this year’s group — other than (Dan) Quinn in Seattle — are guys with losing records who have done absolutely nothing in recent years.”
Bills first-time general manager Doug Whaley is heading the team’s coaching search. And Rex Ryan is on his radar, according to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.
After a long winter’s nap, Boomer and Craig were up early and getting after it in the Allstate Studio on Friday.
When Doug Marrone opted out of his deal with the Bills, many thought he instantly became the top candidate. Jets owner Woody Johnson did little to tone down that speculation.
Bye, Rex Ryan. Hello, Odell Beckham. Let’s take a look at the good, bad and everything in between of this year in local sports.
Rex Ryan is still a hot commodity, despite missing the playoffs for four straight years with the Jets.
He’s an offensive coach. He’s colorful enough, but not so outrageous that he’s going to create a constant media stir. And, oh, yeah, he’s already won the big hardware with Tampa Bay.
If you thought you had a bad Monday, these guys lost their jobs. Personally, I thought Rex deserved another shot.
The former Jets coach will land a job soon enough. But where — and what — remains to be seen.
While Ryan’s coaching decisions and no-holds-barred approach were often criticized, he could never be accused of being boring.
The 2014 Oakland Raiders started out 0-10, but they split their last six games to finish 3-13. This was one game worse than the 2013 squad, which finished 4-12. The Silver & Black haven’t had a winning season since 2002, and they haven’t been to the playoffs since losing the Super Bowl that year. What’s next?
A year of promise turned into a nightmare for Rex Ryan and his New York Jets.
The sidewalk and steps in front of the Jets’ store off Madison Avenue are a rubble-strewn mess, under construction with the promise of a better tomorrow.
The man can still coach, the evidence shows. Sadly, it won’t be here in New York with the Jets. But he will do it somewhere, and he will win if given the proper support and commitment.
