Controversial Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan has been fired, the team announced in a shocking statement on December 27. Additionally, the Bills dismissed defensive assistant Rob Ryan, Rex's twin brother.
Ryan's production wasn't bad in his near two full seasons in Western New York as he finished 8-8 in 2015 and 7-8 this time around. The loss not only officially eliminated the team from the playoffs, but also rid them of finishing with a winning record. The Jets won that first matchup 37-31 after losing both of last season's games to the Bills.
Rex Ryan has been with the team since 2015, after he was canned by the New York Jets.
"I spoke with Rex earlier today and we mutually agreed that the time to part ways is now".

Ryan's firing won't come cheaply for the Bills. "I'm just going to try to win this game".

Marrone, ironically is the interim head coach now for the Jacksonville Jaguars after they fired their head coach Gus Bradley a little over a week ago.
In truth, it was Ryan's fabled defense that proved his undoing. He has had six straight nonwinning seasons as an National Football League head coach since taking the Jets to the AFC title game in each of his first two seasons. That is the direction that the entire league has taken, and it would represent the counterpoint to the hiring of the defensive-minded Ryan the last time around.
