Following yet another disappointing season for the Buffalo Bills, head coach Rex Ryan is expected to be let go by the team.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Buffalo Bills are preparing for a time without Rex Ryan as head coach as they are likely to terminate his contract.

The coaching and front office staff will likely be shaken up quite a bit as well, but general manager Doug Whaley is expected to stick around.

If Ryan does get released, this will mark the third time Whaley has to sign a new head coach, which shows the trust ownership has in him.

This will certainly not be easy for the longtime NFL head coach but according to league sources, Ryan knows what is ahead which is creating an awkward situation among the franchise.

Ryan signed a five-year contract with the team following the 2014 season and is only in the second year. Currently this season, the Bills have lost five out of their last seven are expected to continue their playoff-less drought, which is the longest active in the NFL.
