Ryan: I embraced the Buffalo community

Bills head coach Rex Ryan was making his way down radio row at the Super Bowl this week and shared what he thought may have helped him land the job with the Bills.

In an interview with Pro Football Talk Live, Ryan first expressed how fortunate he felt he was to land the head coaching job with Buffalo.

“I just realize how blessed I am to be given this opportunity. When I became a free agent I wanted to make sure I went to a team where I felt great support from ownership, GM, president and when I interviewed in Buffalo I knew that’s where I wanted to be,” said Ryan.

He was then asked what he thought vaulted him to the top of the list on Buffalo’s list of head coaching candidates.

“When you go in there I was just myself I just knew that they probably felt like I did,” said Ryan of the Pegulas. “I was so comfortable. I understand the vision they have for this organization. They want to win, but they also want to be great in everything they do. I think it helped that I embraced the community, because no one has embraced their community in ownership like the Pegulas so maybe that helped me.

“When I went there I don’t know what I was expecting, but I was blown away by them. I’m a football coach first, and I chose the best situation for me and I look at it as one more shot that I have and it has to work so I went to a spot where I believe it will work.”
