NEW YORK (WFAN) — Rex Ryan will land a job soon enough. But where — and what — remains to be seen.
Ryan, fired by the New York Jets on Monday, apparently has no interest in going back to his roots as a defensive coordinator. It’s head coach or bust.
The 52-year-old has a meeting scheduled with ESPN brass on Tuesday, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Ryan would reportedly consider a job in television as a fallback, and with his boisterous, engaging personality, he could have networks lining up for his services.
“It appears that ESPN would probably be the likely landing spot (in the media),” Mehta told WFAN’s Marc Malusis and Kim Jones on Tuesday.
