Rex Ryan says he knew the Jets wanted to fire him

Buffalo Bills head coach and former Jets head coach spoke to Andrea Kramer on HBO’s Real Sports and Rex was very open about his relationship with the owner of the Jets as well as his tenure with the Jets. 

“I knew we weren’t gonna have a good team when we never did anything in free agency,” Ryan told Andrea Kremer. “I knew that.”

Ryan said he was “100 percent” certain he was done before the Jets played a down last season. He remains extremely close with team owner Woody Johnson and believes the media “wouldn’t allow” Johnson to keep Ryan and after the team fired unpopular general manager John Idzik.

“We talk like brothers. I know Woody never wanted to fire me,” Ryan said. “I could’ve been his coach for 20 years, that’s what Woody wanted. There’s no question Woody wanted that.”
