Ryan's brother, Rob, a defensive assistant, was also shown the door and Anthony Lynn completed a meteoric one-season ride which started as the team's running backs coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator when Greg Roman was sacked earlier in the season and will end as head coach, if only for one game.
Marrone was given the opportunity to leave Buffalo when there was an ownership change.
Ryan has always come across as a players coach, so it's not surprising to see him defended by one.
As for the part of the plan where Ryan would strengthen, or at least maintain, an already-elite defensive squad that featured Pro Bowlers Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams, and Mario Williams along with a bevy of young, talented role players?
That's not what's expected of a coach who is supposed to specialize on the defensive side of the ball.
Ryan won't be missed much in Buffalo. It would take a near ideal December to stay in charge, and QB Tyrod Taylor could be benched as soon as Monday as well. One game as an interim won't be enough to judge Lynn as a head coach accurately, but it is more than offensive coordinators Ben McAdoo and Dirk Koetter got before their respective teams promoted them to head coach last offseason. For the Bills, it's now 17 years without a playoff appearance - and the team is arguably in worse shape than when Ryan arrived. ESPN reported that Manuel is set to start ahead of Taylor for the Bills' final game of the season. If the Bills can navigate that potential trap, there might be room for Lynn to stay as the head coach.
China says space programme must help protect national security
The white paper reiterated plans to launch China's first Mars probe to explore and bring back samples of the red planet by 2020. It seems, the ultimate aim of China will be folded up by making a symbolic landing of an astronaut on the surface of the moon.
All things considered (including the quality of the total universe of on-air studio and game analysts), Ryan could find a niche and thrive. The Buffalo Bills are now 7-8 after after an overtime loss (34-31) to the Dolphins in week 16.
Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi rushed for 206 yards on Saturday after putting up 214 yards against the Bills earlier this season.
Rex Ryan is out as head coach of the Buffalo Bills.
It seems highly unlikely that Rex will get another head coaching gig next season. Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched but he is back in due to an injury to Bryce Petty but his key numbers are 17 interceptions and 10 touchdown passes.
And by benching Taylor, Whaley is nearly stipulating that to be the case even if it is partially a business decision. Despite being an entertaining head coach, he hasn't had a winning season since 2010. Before becoming the Eagles offensive coordinator, Reich interviewed with the University of Maryland for their head coaching position.
