Rex Ryan is staying in the AFC East after all. According to multiple reports, Ryan will soon be named the head coach of the Buffalo Bills after Doug Marrone suddenly resigned.

The deal is reportedly for five years and $27.5 million. It also seems that Ryan has his offensive and defensive coordinators picked out. Current San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman will come to Buffalo under the same role, and current New York Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman will also be coming to Orchard Park.

The Jets fired Ryan and general manager John Idzik after its season finale against the Miami Dolphins.

Despite the fact that Buffalo's quarterback situation is up in the air, this is a move that could put an already scary team over the top. Of course, the knock on Ryan is that he doesn't have much of a grasp on any sort of offensive system and was working with subpar quarterbacks in Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith and Michael Vick, although Vick didn't see much action.

Buffalo has one of the best defenses in the NFL, and Ryan has made life a living hell for opposing quarterbacks in that regard, especially Tom Brady. Depending on who the quarterback is for the Bills on Opening Day next year, we could be looking at the AFC version of the Seattle Seahawks - unreal defense, up-and-down offense.
