Buddy was a key part of the '85 Bears coaching staff -- and was carried off the field when Chicago won the Super Bowl. He was also a coach on the '68 Jets -- the team that won Super Bowl III.
His sons followed in dad's footsteps -- Rex Ryan is the head coach of the Buffalo Bills and his twin brother, Rob Ryan, is one of Rex's asst. coaches.
Mike Ditka -- head coach of the '85 Bears -- issued a statement saying, "We lost a good one. There will never be another guy like Buddy, believe me."
