Rex Ryan and Brother Rob Fired by Buffalo Bills

Ryan's final game in charge was a 34-31 overtime defeat to their divisional rival, the Miami Dolphins, a loss that contained a number of questionable coaching decisions.

Ryan was hired by the Bills in the 2015 offseason to a five-year contract, but lasted just under two seasons. While the Dolphins made a drastic change from having the worst record in the division to being a second-place team, it has not been the case for the Bills. On Tuesday, the Bills fired him with just one game left in the regular season.

The new head coach will inherit a roster in flux, with more than 20 players set to hit free agency in March, including cornerback Stephon Gilmore, linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and wide receiver Robert Woods.

After he was the darling of NY, leading the Jets to four road playoff wins and consecutive AFC Championship games in his first two seasons, Ryan is 41-54 in his last six with no playoff berths.

Rex Ryan lost his job with the Bills on Tuesday because he didn't win enough games (15-16). Ryan was praised for his philosophy of strong defense and a solid running game because of it.

Offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn has been named interim head coach. The Bills may get an early leg up on potential Lynn suitors by seeing what he can do against the Jets this Sunday.

I celebrated Jewish holidays by myself", she said. "The priests had hidden some oil, but it would take eight days to retrieve it". After the battle, the Jews wanted to light the menorah , but had only enough oil for the eight candles to burn for one night.

Like one of the first he delivered upon being introduced as the Jets' head coach at a January 19, 2009, news conference, when he essentially guaranteed a trip to visit Barack Obama at the White House after a Super Bowl victory. According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, it was Whaley who talked Bills owner Terry Pegula into firing Ryan now and replacing him with offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn. After the game, Ryan said it was because Stephon Gilmore was in concussion protocol and a miscommunication caused an 11th player to miss the play.

Do you think the Bills were right to fire Rex Ryan before the season ended?

While the Bills are getting a head start in evaluating the team and future head coach prospects, there are a lot of questions facing the franchise going forward.

When it comes to the Bills' future, the immediate focus will be on Week 17. "I'm not going anywhere else", Ryan said.

Ryan, who isn't shy about telling anyone that he's still a great defensive coach, in recent weeks has defended his scheme and he pointed to his resume built up over more than 20 years in the NFL.

"Obviously, it's a loss you lose sleep over for myself, you know, questioning things and what we could have done different", he added.
