Rob Ryan: I'll Be Better Than Rex



    Cowboys’ defensive coordinator Rob Ryan believes he’ll eventually get a head coaching gig in the NFL--and when he does, he believes he’ll be better than his brother Rex Ryan, who has gone to two consecutive AFC Championship Games (and defeated the Cowboys in week one).

    In an interview with Al Michaels during the broadcast of Sunday Night Football--which featured the Cowboys’ drubbing at the hands of the Eagles--Ryan was asked if the fact that he hadn’t yet had the opportunity to be a head coach ate at him.

    "I mean, I don't think it's going to eat much further,” Ryan said, via the Dallas Morning News. “My chance will come. It only took my dad 25 years to get a chance and hell, he's better than me and [Jets coach and his brother Rex Ryan] put together."

    When asked about his brother’s work in New York, Ryan also made clear that--much like his brother--he doesn’t lack for any confidence.

    "He's had an opportunity,” Ryan said. “He's done great with it. I'll be better than him, so I'll get my chance."
