Photos & Video: Bills head coach Rex Ryan went skydiving today

The off season can be a wild time for coaches. Les Miles rappelled down a building in 2013,Frank Beamer,Bo Pelini and a number of other staff's spent some time doing the Harlem Shake a few years ago, and then there was the #Chillin4Charity event last year.

Well Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan is the latest head coach to do something a little crazy during the off season.

At 9am EST this morning, Ryan showed up to Niagra Falls Air Reserve Station for a tandem skydive with the U.S. Army Golden Nights Parachute team.

After free-falling a few thousand feet with everything going according to plan, Rex landed safely a little while ago.

While safely on the ground, Ryan was asked about the experience, to which he responded, "That was awesome. I'm ready to go again."

A different kind of touchdown. 👍

"Man you're just, you're flying...that's really what it is, you know?" Ryan explained. "At the end, as you get closer, you start to realize 'Ok, now I've got to land."

I can't think of too many other NFL or FBS coaches that would jump out of a plane like that. Kudos to Ryan.
