The Ryan brothers will reunite on the sidelines for the first time in two decades, as Rob Ryan has agreed to join head coach Rex Ryan’s defensive staff with the Buffalo Bills. This is going to make for an amazing shit show.
The Ryan brothers have not worked on the same staff since 1995, when both were assistants with the Arizona Cardinals under their father, and former Eagles head coach, Buddy Ryan. Rex Ryan released the following statement.

Rob Ryan was fired by the Saints in November after he served as the team’s defensive coordinator for two-plus season. The Saints’ defense ranked last in the NFL in both yards allowed and points allowed before Ryan was fired. Of course Rob and Rex’s father Buddy was the head coach of the Eagles from 1986-1990. Buddy’s Eagles team was fun to watch and best known for their menacing defense.
Things are about to get more interesting in Buffalo.
