New York Jets coach Robert Saleh’s brother claps back at Rex Ryan: “Stick to feet and eating, clown”

Rex Ryan didn’t like being compared to current New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh.

While Saleh responded with a classy answer today to the former Jets head coach:

Saleh’s brother, David Saleh, gave Ryan a more New York style of answer back to him.

Ryan was the Jets head coach from 2009-2014 and the Buffalo Bills head coach from 2015-2016 before taking a job with ESPN.

Ryan coached the jets to two consecutive AFC Championship Games in his first two seasons but then had four sub-standard seasons before being fired.

The 2021 season is Saleh’s first as an NFL head coach and is currently 2-7.
