We haven't seen the last of Rex Ryan. According to Adam Schefter, the Buffalo Bills and Rex Ryan have agreed on a five-year contract for him to become the next head coach of the franchise. Ryan, who was fired by the New York Jets following the 2014 season, interviewed with the Bills management team a second time yesterday in Florida.
This is an interesting decision because the Bills' offense isn't very strong. With no quarterback to speak of and no first round pick, the quarterback situation is one that will take at least two to three years to address. That's because there are no sure-fire quarterbacks in this year's draft and the top quarterback set to hit the free agent market is Mark Sanchez.
However, there are reports that Ryan wants to bring in former Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman in as his offensive coordinator. That would obviously solve a lot of issues but can Trestman make it work with EJ Manuel? It remains to be seen. On the defensive side of the ball, Ryan will be bringing in his defensive coordinator from the Jets - Dennis Thurman. This is according to Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network. That means Jim Schwartz, who made that defense one of the best in the league, will be on his way out.
The deal is expected to be five years so we'll be seeing plenty of Rex over the next several years.
