Bills owners Terry Pegula and Kim Pegula admit it was a difficult decision, but one they needed to make. Rex Ryan was relieved of his duties as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills.
In a statement on the team’s website, Terry Pegula said, “I spoke with Rex earlier today and we mutually agreed that the time to part ways is now. These decisions are never easy. I want to take this opportunity to thank Rex for all his efforts and wish him all the best moving forward.”
“Kim and I and our entire Bills organization share in the same disappointment and frustration as our fans, but we remain committed to our goal of bringing a championship to Western New York.”
“Anthony Lynn will serve as our interim head coach to lead us through the Jets game.” Many consider Lynn a legitimate choice to become the team’s next head coach.
Ryan’s brother, Rob Ryan, was also relieved of his duties. He was hired just this past offseason to serve as Assistant head coach/Defense.
Ryan’s career as Bills head coach finished with a record of 15-16.
