Ravens Fire Rex Ryan, Hire Rex Ryan

I'll just let the Associated Press story explain this one:

Ryan, fired as defensive coordinator on Dec. 31, was named Monday as the team's assistant head coach/defensive coordinator. Ryan, 45, was given the position by new coach John Harbaugh, who planned to make a formal announcement at an afternoon news conference.

So the owner lashes out after a disappointing 5-11 season and fires all the coaches, including the one guy who actually did a good job.  Then the GM and the new coach have to go back and ask to rehire him.  Probably at a significant pay increase.  

Those NFL owners sure are smart, aren't they?
