In the past three days, there has been a lot of change at Redskins Park.

On Monday, Jay Gruden was relieved from his head coaching duties and offensive line coach Bill Callahan took over in the interim. Callahan will likely be an 11-game rental at head coach before the team makes a full-time hire in the offseason.

So what will the Redskins do after that? Well, it didn't take long for one former NFL head coach to put his name in the running for the next Redskins head coach.

On ESPN's Get Up, former New York Jets and Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan was asked if anyone would want the Redskins head coaching job. 

"Of course, everybody. I would take it." Ryan said

He didn't stop there.

"Here's the deal, people are going to be lined up for this job," Ryan continued. 

Ryan, of course, makes a point. There are only 32 head coaching jobs in the NFL, and plenty of coordinators and other coaches that would jump at the chance to be a head coach on football's biggest stage.

In eight seasons as an NFL head coach, Ryan's record is slightly under .500 at 61-66. His coaching career started off surprisingly well, taking the Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship games in 2009 and 2010. He failed to make the playoffs ever again. 

 

It's also worth noting that Ryan's brother, Rob, is currently the Redskins inside linebackers coach.

It was worth it for Rex to shoot his shot, however, he is unlikely to be in the mix of things for the job. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is reportedly on the Redskins shortlist and was asked about the opening. There are plenty of other candidates the Burgundy and Gold will consider when choosing their next head coach as well.
