INDIANAPOLIS -- Rex Ryan had to make the customary joke about working with his twin brother, Rob, on the Buffalo Bills' coaching staff.
"We haven’t fought each other yet, so I think we’re getting better," he said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine. "But, no, he’s been phenomenal."
Rob Ryan, whom the New Orleans Saints fired as their defensive coordinator during the 2015 season, is the Bills' assistant head coach/defense.
"Obviously, to add him to our team is huge for us," Rex said. "I know the players will be excited about it, but coaches are excited about it. And here’s a guy that’s been a coordinator for the last 12 years, obviously been on championship teams as a position coach.
"But his experience and his knowledge and his work ethic, his passion, it’s hard to match in this league. It’s been great. He’s so excited. He’s like, ‘God, we should have done this a long time ago.’”
