Rob Ryan Ends Meeting With Rams Without A Contract Offer

Jason LaCanfora reports that defensive coordinator Rob Ryan left today’s interview with the Rams without a contract offer.

Ed Werder of ESPN reports that the St Louis Rams  are interviewing ex-Cowboys DC Rob Ryan for their defensive coordinator vacancy on Friday.

The Rams seem to have genuine interest in Ryan, so it’s safe to assume that there’s a reasonable chance a deal could be completed in the near future.

Jim Thomas reports that team sources have informed him that they haven’t hired Rob Ryan, but remain interested in.

Thomas adds that Fisher tends to take his time with such hires, so it may require some additional time before we know anything more.

Brian Costello is now reporting that a different source has informed him that Rob Ryan to the Rams is “not a done deal.”

Jason La Canfora tweets that his sources have confirmed that Rob Ryan is the favorite to hired as the Rams’ defensive coordinator, but adds that there’s no deal in place at this point in time.

Brian Costello reports that the St Louis Rams have hired Rob Ryan as their next defensive coordinator.

Jim Thomas of the St Louis Post-Dispatch writes that the Rams are “believed” to have discussed the idea of potentially bringing in recently fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to run their defense next year.

Thomas adds that there’s guarantee that Ryan would be a good fit for the Rams given that he typically employs 3-4 defensive schemes instead of the 4-3 that Jeff Fisher has been running in recent years. Thomas believes there’s a chance that the Rams could consider someone who’s already on their staff like assistant head coach Dave McGinnis or secondary coach Chuck Cecil for the job, since both of them have experience as coordinators and have worked directly with Fisher in the past.

St Louis parted ways with Gregg Williams and his son, Blake, a few weeks ago, but there hasn’t been a lot of talk regarding a potential replacement since then. We’ll have to see if there’s anything to the idea of Rob Ryan joining their staff.

    as soon as he was fired, a few of us at work said “watch the rams hire him”. that statement was followed by a collective mumble and groan. not real sure i like this idea. this rams team is heading in the right direction. especially on the defensive side of the ball. what is it about Ryan that makes the organization think “this is the guy we need to put us over the top” ???

      I’m not sure what the appeal of Rob Ryan really is given that his track record doesn’t suggest that he’s one of the best defensive minds in the game. Maybe he’s the best at interviewing? Ryan runs a 3-4 defensive scheme primarily, which goes against the defensive philosophy that Jeff Fisher has been running for years now. On top of that, there’s some question as to whether or not their personnel is a good match for such a change. I can’t say I love the idea personally.
