It's all about branding. Rex Ryan was a brand as was his father going back to the '86 Bears. My guess is that hiring a brand name coach for a small town franchise like the Bills was big news. There was success in his background but now that success is farther and farther in the past and his brand is severely tarnished. Without a big re-branding as a successful coordinator somewhere, he's done.

Rex was a much better defensive coordinator than head coach. That's how it works out sometimes, people think just because a guy is a successful coordinator he would make a good head coach.

Ironically, Rob Ryan has always been a mediocre defensive coordinator and he was never asked to be a head coach even by his main benefactor Al Davis. Rob also is more of a loose cannon than Rex. Both have more than worn out their welcome in the NFL.

Also, Buddy Ryan was not a great head coach either. He did ok with Philly but his "Buddy Bull" act wore thin in Arizona.
