Bills coach Rex Ryan has added a future Hall of Famer to his coaching staff.
Ed Reed has agreed to join the Bills as the team’s assistant defensive backs coach.
“Ed Reed is going to be such a great asset to our team. First off, having spent time with Ed in Baltimore and then in New York—I can attest to the incredibly high level of professionalism he is going to bring with him to Buffalo. All of the things he’s done throughout his entire playing career, such as how he studies film, preparing throughout the week for game days, and things like that, he will impress upon our players,” Ryan said in a statement. “Obviously, he’s played in this system at a MVP-caliber level and he’s a real student of the game. I think he’s going to be a phenomenal coach and I truly believe our players are going to love learning from him.”
Reed and Ryan were together for seven seasons with the Ravens, and Reed played for Ryan with the Jets at the end of Reed’s career.
