Rex Ryan to have second interview with Buffalo Bills

Of the dozen coaches that the Buffalo Bills have interviewed thus far, Rex Ryan has emerged as the first (that we know of) to score a second interview. That'll happen on Sunday in Florida.

The Buffalo Bills have interviewed a clean dozen candidates for their vacant head coaching job to this point - and more may well be on the way - but former New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is the first that we know of to get a second interview. That's happening tomorrow (Sunday) in Florida, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

It's a quick turnaround for the two sides, as Ryan met with Bills brass on Thursday, January 8, as well.

Earlier this week, ESPN's John Clayton appeared on WGR 550's Schopp and the Bulldog, where he reported that Ryan is "aligned" with former Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman, who would conceivably serve as Ryan's offensive coordinator were he to land a head coaching gig. That would be welcome news for Bills fans that have grown frustrated with the Bills' anemic attack over the last two seasons - though it might also quickly kill any speculation that the Bills would trade for Jay Cutler, as well.

Ryan, 52, has spent the last six seasons coaching the Jets, where he posted a 46-50 record overall and made two playoff appearances.
