On Monday, former Bucs and Colts coach Tony Dungy told Dan Patrick that Dungy wouldn’t hire a foul-mouthed coach like Jets coach Rex Ryan.
On Tuesday, former Eagles and Cardinals coach Buddy Ryan got involved.
Appearing with John Gonzalez and Vai Sikahema of 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia, the elder Ryan discussed Dungy’s criticism of Rex.
As to Dungy’s point that he wouldn’t hire Rex Ryan, Buddy Ryan said, “I don’t think he had applied for a job with what’s his name, either.”
As to Dungy’s statement that he hopes Commissioner Roger Goodell tells Rex to tone it down, Buddy Ryan said, “Well, it’s none of Dungy’s business.”
As to the entire issue, Buddy Ryan said that he “think[s] it’s being blown way out of perspective.”
Fortunately for the folks at 97.5 The Fanatic, Buddy Ryan used no profanity during the interview.
