A father and his two twin sons, Buddy, Rex and Rob, have acquired five Super Bowl rings as NFL coaches.

The Ryan Family and their Super Bowl rings

There’s much more to life than Super Bowl rings and championship rings. Two sons lost their loving father yesterday. Since the scope of my blogs are about championship rings, let’s discuss the Ryan family’s collection of Super Bowl rings.

It’s interesting to note, that none of the super bowl rings shown below were won by a team with a Ryan as an NFL head coach.

The photograph below shows every Super Bowl ring the Ryan family has won. Love ‘em or despise them, the Ryans are terrific coaches, and perhaps, someday, Rex and maybe even Rob will finally win a Super Bowl ring as an NFL head coach.

The championship rings pictured above are presented in chronological order. Not only does the picture show every championship ring the family owns, the photo also show cases the on-going evolution and growing sizes of Super Bowl rings.

Here’s the low-down on each championship ring:

The championship ring on the far left is the iconic Jets Super Bowl III ring, and the Jets only one. Designed and minted by Balfour, Buddy received this Super Bowl ring as the Defensive Line Coach. The championship ring is 40 grams and contains one large diamond and 6 smaller diamonds. Rex and Rob, although very young, remember the game well. They were lucky enough to be in attendance and root for Dad and the Jets.

Seventeen years later, as the Defensive Coordinator for the Bears, Buddy was awarded a Bears Super Bowl XX championship ring. That ring, also crafted by Jostens, has a large center diamond, weighs 47 grams, and has 40 diamonds.

The middle Super Bowl ring, is the Ravens’ Super XXXV ring. It belongs to current Buffalo Bills coach, Rex Ryan. It’s his only Super Bowl ring. He recently commented that his dad and brother each have two Super Bowl rings, while Rex only has one. Rex has promised to “fix that” deficiency. Rex was awarded this championship ring as the Ravens Defensive Line Coach.

Rex’s Ravens Super Bowl ring weighs in at 65 grams and it was designed and made by Jostens. The gorgeous championship ring contains over 100 diamonds.

The final two Super Bowl rings belong to Rob Ryan. Rob was the New England Patriots Linebackers coach when they won their first two Super Bowls. Rob is currently a coach for the Bills and working with his brother Rex.

The Super Bowl ring, second from the right is the Patriots Super Bowl XXXVI ring. Designed and manufactured by Jostens, the championship ring contains 144 diamonds and weighs 66 grams.

Last, the ring on the far right is the Patriots second Super Bowl ring and the last time a Ryan has won a Super Bowl ring. This is the Super Bowl XXXVIII ring, also made by Jostens. The championship ring weighs in at 100 grams and contains 104 diamonds. While the ring may have less total diamonds then the Patriot’s first championship ring, the diamonds are larger and the ring is one-third larger too.
