Unless his team gets hot over the final four weeks of the season, Rex Ryan may be finished as coach of the Bills.
Noting that there is dissension within the team, CBS Sports reported that Ryan could be out as early today.
Ryan's relationship with general manager Doug Whaley and other Bills executives has become strained, according to CBS Sports, with the front office maintaining that the team is not playing up to the level of its talent. And the front office has the ear of owner Terry Pegula.
The Bills are 6-7 after Sunday's loss to the Steelers. They finished 8-8 and third in the AFC East in 2015, Ryan's first year as coach.
Asked about the report after Sunday's game, Ryan said, "I got no comment. I don't know anything about that."
Ryan arrived to great fanfare in 2015, bringing a 50-52 record with the Jets.
