For a guy who was also fired from the same job in Cleveland two years ago, Ryan seems oddly confident that he will find a place on another team, saying, “I’ll be out of work for like 5 minutes.” Speaking with the Dallas Morning Star, he elaborated on that saying, “I have no hard feelings. But it doesn’t matter if I coach here or not.  I will find another spot,” before adding, “I’m too damn good.”

Maybe he can find a place with his twin brother, Rex Ryan, on the NY Jets coaching staff.
