Former New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is looking for employment. However, the recently fired coach could be joining several former coaches as a football analyst.
Ryan is going to interview with CBS tomorrow regarding a TV job. If he’s hired by CBS or ESPN, who he previously interviewed with, it is not clear what it role will be in studio or at games.
Former head coach Jon Gruden has made a name for himself as a ESPN Monday Night Football broadcaster. Several weeks ago, Gruden signed a lengthy contract with ESPN that will take him through 2020.
Ryan, who was the Jets head coach for the past six years, is also being courted by several NFL teams. The San Francisco 49ers and the Buffalo Bills are reportedly interested in interviewing Ryan.
Speculation is that Ryan, if hired for an NFL job, would like to coach the Falcons. This season, the team barely missed out on making the playoffs, as it came down to the final game of the season with the Carolina Panthers.
The Falcons are also interested in Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin.
There’s already speculation that if Ryan joins ESPN, he would replace Mike Ditka on Sunday NFL Countdown.
