Two of Rex Ryan's would-be teammates at ESPN, Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden, believe he will coach rather than go the TV route. But they agree he would be a natural.

Tirico said Ryan handled the New York media as well as anyone since Bill Parcells.

"There's no learning curve of getting comfortable in front of the camera, in front of microphones," he said. "If Rex does go that way, I think it's as smooth a transition as you could see from head coach to media guy."
