Rex Ryan is not wasting Bills' money on hats

Thursday November 19th, 2015

NFL franchises are very successful businesses worth billions, but making all that money is no reason to let your expenses run wild, and Rex Ryan understands that, which is why he doesn’t change hats very often.

The Bills coach admitted he was still wearing the same hat from the Bills victory over the Jets in Week 10 at his press conference a week later. He also shared a coaching tip about the importance of hats in postgame travel, saying, “When you don’t shower and you gotta come back, you gotta put on a hat. So I’ve learned that through the years of coaching.”

Buffalo wore special all-red “Color Rush” jerseys in Week 10 and Ryan’s hat matched the new palette. The jerseys were not well received by the colorblind community

The Bills next game is against the Patriots on Monday night. It is unknown if the divisional battle will warrant a fresh cap for the coach.
