Greg Roman did not enjoy working with Rex Ryan, privately telling at least one person after the 2015 he thought he was a "buffoon." Roman also thought being affiliated with Ryan wasn't going to be good for his career.
Roman was known to have been looking for a job elsewhere last offseason but he ended up remaining as offensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills.
Roman was fired by Ryan after their loss in Week 2.
Ryan went out of his way to say nice things about Roman during a news conference Friday, saying that he "always thought he's a tremendous coach and I still believe that."
