Before you could say “let’s go get a f*cking snack,” Rex Ryan’s comeback tour is underway.

Former Buffalo Bills and New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has been hired by ESPN to join the on-air team for the Super Bowl this Sunday, according to Sports Business Journal. During his contract, Rex will be covering his longtime nemesis, Bill ‘Kiss My Rings’ Belichick. Ryan was let go by the Bills with one game remaining in the 2016 season after compiling a 15-16 record in 31 games with Buffalo.

The deal technically makes Ryan an ESPN employee for three hours. According to the SBJ report, Ryan will be appearing on Sunday NFL Countdown from 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.

“ESPN says the deal only covers Super Bowl Sunday, but it clearly makes ESPN a front-runner to sign Ryan to a longer deal if he’s unable to find a coaching job he likes.”

This is a huge get for ESPN. Even as a disillusioned Jets fan, I still have a soft spot in my heart for Rex. As sad as it is, Rex and Dirty Mark Sanchez are responsible for the best times of my Jets life. Beating Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in back to back weeks? No many people can say they did that.

I’ll always root for Rex Ryan.
