New York Jets coach Rex Ryan went running with the bulls in Spain

We're learning quite a bit about what NFL head coaches like to do during this rare quiet time in the NFL calendar.

New Orleans coach Sean Payton was a caddie for a PGA Tour player last weekend. And it turns out, at the same time, Jets coach Rex Ryan was running with the bulls in Spain.

Ryan's exploits were a little more dangerous.

The Associated Press confirmed Ryan ran twice with the bulls as part of the annual tradition in Pamplona, Spain. The team confirmed that Ryan did take part after Ben Patton, a star of the reality TV show "Ready for Love," posted a picture of himself and Ryan in Spain on his Instagram account. Ryan is wearing a T-shirt that says "Bad Toro."

The Jets reported that Ryan wasn't hurt during the running of the bulls. That's good to hear because, well, you've seen the running of the bulls, right?
