Rex Ryan hasn’t coached in the NFL since 2016 and his name never really comes up anymore for open positions, but he pretty much confirmed he’s ready to get back on the field.
During Wednesday’s edition of ESPN’s ‘Get Up,’ the former head coach stated people would be lining up to coach the Washington Redskins, and that includes him.
“Of course,” Ryan said. “I would take it. . . . People are going to be lined up for this job.”
Considering the Redskins are currently 0-5 and not too many really like owner Dan Snyder — Ryan still makes a valid point. There are only 32 NFL head-coaching jobs in the league and there are hundreds of assistants who would want to to take that next step and show that they can handle the position.
As for Ryan, he did take the New York Jets to two consecutive AFC Championship Games in his first two seasons as a head coach and currently has a 61-66 career record. Having a career record under .500 means nothing, considering pretty much every coach that has came through Washington has a losing record upon leaving the team.
