Bills Are Reportedly "Likely" To Move On From Rex Ryan

This is likely Rex Ryan's final season in Buffalo.

Rex Ryan is likely to be fired by the Buffalo Bills following the regular season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

From his report:

As Buffalo tries to prevent Cleveland from winning its first game of the season on Sunday, Rex Ryan is probably coaching his final games as the Bills' head coach, according to league sources.

Ryan is aware of what's ahead, sources said, which creates an awkward situation surrounding the Bills until the change is made.

While Buffalo is preparing to move on from Ryan, the organization is expected to retain its general manager Doug Whaley, who is expected to be given a chance to hire his third different head coach, after having a hand in the hirings of Ryan and former Bills head coach Doug Marrone.

Ryan, 54, has been the Bills' head coach since 2015. He's gone 14-15 in two seasons.

The former New York Jets' head coach signed a five-year deal worth $5.5 million/season in 2015.
