Bills head coach Rex Ryan learned late Monday that his brother had been fired as defensive coordinator of the Saints. Ryan was asked about his brother Rob Ryan and his current situation.

“He’s a great coach and he’ll be fine. It’s the business. It’s the business that we chose. It’s going to happen,” said Ryan. “It happens to every coach. It happened to (Bill) Belichick and he’s the greatest coach of all time. It happened to him. It happens to everybody. Tough day, yeah I think I would’ve liked to have seen him finish out the season. I know that’s what he would liked to have done. But things are done for a reason and so be it.”

When asked if he would consider bringing him on to his staff, Ryan didn’t dismiss it.

“I’ll never say never, that’s for sure. I think we purposely set a path going to different teams. He’s his own man, I’m my own man and we’ve purposely set that path,” Ryan said. “With that being said I’m not going to lie to you. I think it’d be pretty fun and if it could help, obviously you would consider it and he’d have to consider it as well. We’ve got great coaches already here, but we’ll see.”
