At least this time the football coach being referenced at a Donald Trump rally will be alive. 

After invoking the late Joe Paterno at rally in Pennsylvania last week, Trump will be introduced by Bills head coach Rex Ryan at an event Monday night in Buffalo. 

Ryan didn’t exactly endorse Trump, but he did confirm that he’ll introduce Trump at his event at the First Niagara Center. 

Trump, the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination, has landed himself in hot water for some comments he’s made. We’re talking, of course, about his criticisms of NFL officiating. We’re definitely not talking about anything else he may have said. Nope. No way.

Trump made a run at buying the Bills two years ago but lost to Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula.

He was gracious in defeat. 

Too bad he couldn’t Make The Bills Great Again.
