Former New York Jets and Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan subtly threw his hat in the ring for the Washington Redskins’ vacant head coaching position.
Now a football analyst for ESPN, when Ryan was asked on “Get Up!” who would want to accept the job, he said, “Of course, everybody. I would take it.”
“Here’s the deal: People are gonna be lined up for this job,” Ryan continued. “They absolutely will.”
So far, nobody else is in line with Ryan. A report said Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley, annually brought up as a good NFL coaching candidate, is not interested in the Redskins.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was asked about the vacancy and deflected the question.
“I’m the head coach of a 1-4 football team that’s going on the road to play a Hall of Fame quarterback with a third-string quarterback. Do you think I’m worried about anything other than that?” Tomlin said.
He has an all-time record of 61-66 across six season with New York and two with Buffalo.
