Rex Ryan, Falcons part ways after five-hour interview

The Atlanta Falcons and former New York Jets coach Rex Ryan have parted ways after spending the afternoon together on Tuesday.

Ryan's interview ended after five or more hours, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of their situation.

The length of the interview is proof of mutual interest, even if both parties are moving on to their next round of interviews.

The Falcons still have an interview scheduled with Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles on Thursday, per Rapoport.

Now that Ryan has left Atlanta without a deal, the Buffalo Bills would like to speak with him as well, a source tells Rapoport.

It will be interesting to see if Ryan's camp maintains dialogue with the Falcons in the meantime.

UPDATE: Rapoport reported Wednesday morning, per two sources informed of the search's progress, that Ryan is expected to get a second interview in Atlanta when they bring in finalists for their head coaching job.

Five hours? Yep, just about the right amount of time needed to screen/discuss The Interview in the privacy of the Failclown's front office without having to worry about a terrorist attack in a public theatre ... don't tell me they were in there seriously talking about football, .

I think Todd Bowles ends up getting the Atlanta job.
