Rex Ryan signs TV contract, per report

Least surprising news of the offseason: Rex Ryan is heading to television.

Three months removed from his last NFL coaching gig (the final NFL coaching he’d ever do, according to his boastful introductory press conference in Buffalo), former Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan is sticking to his word, and pursuing a new career angle.

That’s according to New York Daily News reporter Manish Mehta, who reports that Ryan has signed a multi-year deal with ESPN to appear on the show “Sunday NFL Countdown.”

Ryan already made a guest appearance on the show during Super Bowl Sunday. Now it looks like the boisterous former coach may be on his way to membership in Jon Gruden’s Fired Football Coaches Association, as the latest media personality to emerge from the NFL coaching ranks.
