Former Browns DC Rob Ryan Reportedly Heads To Dallas

They say things are bigger in Texas. If that's the case, Rob Ryan will fit right in. With the Browns silently letting Ryan know his services will no longer be needed, the former defensive coordinator has found a new home - in Dallas as the DC of the Cowbooys under new head coach Jason Garrett.


Ryan is the brother of Rex Ryan, head coach of the Jets, and some had thought he might be in line of r ahead coaching gig this offseason. Of course, there may only be room enough for one Ryan in the head coaching ranks, and Rex has creates enough quotes to go around.


Ryan is a character, however, and one helluva coach. His defenses in Oakland and Cleveland were always aggressive, even when they did not have all that much talent. It looked for a while as though the Browns might try and keep Ryan with new Head Coach Pat Shurmur focused more on the offense but with Dave Wannstedt and Dick Jauron scheduled for interviews Ryan found work with the Cowboys.
