After getting fired by the Saints, defensive coordinator Rob Ryan stopped by his brother Rex’s Buffalo Bills in early December. It was just a brief visit at the time, but on Sunday, Rex officially hired his twin brother to be part of the Bills’ coaching staff. Buddy Ryan’s large adult sons are now coworkers. Hit it!

Rob will be an assistant head coach on defense for Buffalo. Rex announced the hiring in a statement on the team website:

“I’m excited to have Rob join our staff and I think he will be a great asset for our defense. He has a tremendous working knowledge of our schemes and I look forward to his input,” said Head Coach Rex Ryan. “On a personal note, it’s been a number of years since we have worked together and so we are both really looking forward to this opportunity.”

The Bills’ sidelines are going to be must-see TV next season.
