Rex Ryan Has Interest From 49ers, Falcons, & Bills, But ESPN Still An Option


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Rex Ryan has interviews schedule with the Falcons and 49ers to go along from interest from the Bills.

  • Rapoport confirms that Ryan’s interview with the Falcons will take place on Tuesday.
  • Rapoport adds that television remains an option for Ryan, as he’s retained broadcast agent CAA’s Nick Khan.

According to Pro Football Talk, some in the NFL believe Ryan is talking to NFL teams in order to squeeze out more money from ESPN.

PFT mentions that the Falcons are the better choice for Ryan if choosing between Atlanta and Buffalo, but he could take a job at ESPN over the Bills if they end up being his only option.


Joe Fotenbaugh reports that the Miami Dolphins recently made Rex Ryan an offer to take over as the team’s defensive coordinator.

  • Fotenbaugh adds that the Dolphins were offering him a multi-year contract worth approximately $8 million to run their defense.

Ryan reportedly is not interested in taking a defensive coordinator position, and would instead head to television if he can’t secure a head coaching job.


Brian Costello reports that the former Jets HC Rex Ryan is interviewing with the Falcons and 49ers for the head-coaching vacancies.

  • Jason La Canfora confirms that the Falcons are interviewing Ryan and adds that they are “very intrigued” by the possibility of him coaching the Falcons.


Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that former Jets HC Rex Ryan has two interviews scheduled for next week regarding head coaching opportunities.

Earlier in the day, Mehta reported that Ryan is meeting with ESPN executives Tuesday regarding a potential role with the network if he doesn’t land head coaching job.

Previous reports mentioned that the Raiders, Bears, and Falcons could all be options for Ryan now that he’s available.

Numerous reports in the past few weeks have connected Ryan to the Falcons given that he previously applied for their job before landing with the Jets.

Since taking over as the Jets head coach in 2009, Ryan has led the Jets to a record of 45-50 (.474) to go along with four playoff wins. However, his defenses have ranked 1st, 3rd, 5th, 8th, 11th and 6th during this time.

We’ll have more updates regarding Ryan as the news is available.
