Ryan had success in his first two years with the Jets, leading the franchise to the AFC Championship Game after each season. However, the Jets never had another winning season over his last four years. The Bills finished 9-7 this past season, their first winning record since a similar mark in 2004, but head coach Doug Marrone decided to opt out of his contract. He exercised a clause that allowed him to do so when the franchise was sold from the Ralph Wilson Trust to Terry and Kim Pegula in October. Marrone was 15-17 in his two seasons with the Bills, who have not reached the playoffs since 1999 but can build upon one of the NFLs top defensive units from 2014. Ryan is a defensive-minded coach, having spent four seasons as defensive coordinator in Baltimore before taking the job with the Jets. ' ' '
