After two unsuccessful seasons with the team, the Buffalo Bills have decided to move on from head coach Rex Ryan.

The final straw was Saturday’s dreadful 34-31 overtime loss to the Miami Dolphins, which officially eliminated the Bills from the postseason—marking their 17th consecutive season of playoff-less football.

During the game, which the Bills needed to win (not tie) in order to stay alive, Ryan made a questionable call to punt the ball on fourth-down from his team’s own 41-yard line with only 4 minutes remaining in overtime.  Then, after giving the ball back to the Dolphins, the Bills defense had just 10 players on the field for a play that resulted in a 57-yard run for Jay Ajayi—which set up the game-winning field-goal.

Ryan posted a 15-16 record in his 31 games as the Bills head coach. His brother and Bills defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan, was also fired by the team.

Here’s an official statement from the Bills organization:

And here’s how Twitter reacted to the news of the Ryans being fired:
