The Buffalo Bills didn’t even wait until the end of the season (as everyone thought) to fire Rex Ryan. The organization decided he and his brother should leave the team effective immediately, following the overtime loss to the Miami Dolphins on Saturday. That loss officially knocked them out of playoff contention for the 17th season in a row.
The Ryan era didn’t even last but two seasons before it was over.
Serving as interim coach for the final game of the season against the New York Jets will be offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn, who is slated to be a hot commodity in the offseason. He commanded some buzz in the coaching search last year and is expected to be in talks for many vacant positions after the season again.
Ryan finished the season losing six of nine games, going 1-7 against teams with a winning record. He ends his tenure in Buffalo with a record of 15-16.
Before the season, Rex said the Bills would be his last stop of his career. Will he hold his word?
