PHOENIX (WFAN) — Rex Ryan agrees, the situation he’s walking into in Buffalo is similar to the one he just left with the Jets.
But he doesn’t care, because, to the surprise of absolutely no one, he says he has a plan.
The Jets’ former head coach sat down with WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts during Super Bowl XLIX media availability on Thursday and talked about what the future has in store for his new team while reflecting on his tenure with his old one.
Ryan, who went 50-52, including 4-2 in the playoffs during his six seasons with the Jets, said his former players are the only reason why he’s still a head coach in the NFL.
“I have put a little extra chip on my shoulder to say, you know what? It was embarrassing to me to be fired. It’s the first time I had ever been fired by myself. It affects a lot of people’s lives and, obviously, I loved the players that we had,” said Ryan, who signed a five-year, $27.5 million deal with the Bills two weeks ago. “They gave me everything. And the reason I got this job was through their efforts.”
