Is the NFL ready for another Ryan as head coach?
Rob Ryan hopes so, and he made it clear that he hopes to be considered for the Raiders job if Tom Cable is let go.
“Hell, yeah, I’d have interest,” Ryan told USA Today. “I haven’t talked to Mr. Davis because he has a coach. Let’s see what happens.”
The Browns defensive coordinator doesn’t lack for confidence. No surprise there.
“I will be a head coach in this league, and I will be damn successful, too. . . . There
are a lot of good coaches out there, but there are only so many Ryans.”
The words are a small surprise because Ryan seemed eager to leave Oakland a year ago. But he reportedly didn’t burn any bridges and even had kind words for JaMarcus Russell a few weeks back.
He must really want that job.
