Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James David "Buddy" Ryan (born on February 17, 1934) is a former American NFL football coach. Ryan was born and reared in a small, agricultural-based community "just outside of Frederick, Oklahoma." Ryan played college football for Oklahoma A&M University (now Oklahoma State) where he earned four letters as a guard between 1952 and 1955. He "served as a Master sergeant in the U.S. Army during the Korean War." Ryan began his coaching career at Gainesville High School in Gainesville, Texas in 1957 as an assistant coach under Dub Wooten. When Wooten became head coach at Marshall Texas High School in 1959, Ryan was promoted to head coach at Gainesville. After one season at Gainesville, he "spent one year as high-school athletic director in Marshall, Texas." Gainesville was his only head coach position until he was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles 25 years later.show more
