Jets hope Ryan can fulfill father’s legacy

New York can only hope that Rex Ryan is as good for the Jets as his father Buddy once was.

A little known fact: From 1968-75, Rex’s father, Buddy, was the Jets’ defensive line coach. Ryan coached for the Jets during the franchise’s most significant time, when it upset Baltimore to win Super Bowl III.

Buddy Ryan later went on to become the architect of the “46” defense that the Chicago Bears used to win Super Bowl XX. His son, Rex, watched it all.

And he now will set out to help the Jets as much as his father once did.
