Today is a great day in the United States. History is being made. A man is ascending to a position of great power. I’m talking, of course, about Rex Ryan, who was named head coach of the New York Jets last night. Ryan is the son of former longtime NFL defensive coordinator and head coach Buddy Ryan. The elder Ryan was the defensive coordinator for the Super Bowl III champion Jets as well as the architect of the Chicago Bears 46 Defense in the mid 80s. Rex Ryan has spent the last 10 years on the Baltimore Ravens coaching staff, the last 4 of which he was defensive coordinator. This past season he added the title of assistant head coach. He’ll be officially introduced as Jets head coach tomorrow.
