Bills coach Rex Ryan: 'This is my last stop'

Thursday January 15th, 2015

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan says his current job will be the last one he has.

Ryan appeared on ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike" on Thursday to talk about his new job.

"This is it. This is my last stop. This is it for me," Ryan said. "The last team I'll ever coach will be the Buffalo Bills, and I hope it's 15 years from now."

Ryan was officially introduced as the Bills coach on Wednesday after being fired less than two weeks ago as the New York Jets' head coach. Ryan had a 46-50 record in six seasons in New York.

Ryan said he is going to put together "an all-star staff that's not about individuals, but about the team."

Ryan has brought in former San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman. Thurman worked with Ryan in New York.

"The players [with the Jets] are the reason that I got this job, and I'll always be indebted to them," Ryan said. "This is my new start. This is where it's going to be. I'm not looking back; I'm looking forward."

Buffalo has not been to the playoffs since 1999 and has not won a playoff game since 1995.
