Report: Rob Ryan to be named Cowboys DC

The Cowboys and Rob Ryan seemed to be locked into each other as recently as Friday, with multiple reports of contract negotiations coming out of the woodwork.

There's been no official announcement as of yet, but Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Cowboys have decided on Ryan as their new defensive coordinator.

The combination of Jason Garrett and Ryan seems pretty odd on the front, especially when you consider just what Rob's brother, Rex, brings to the table from a PR perspective.

But Ryan has a real chance to slip right into a talent-laden 3-4 scheme, coach up a defense that somehow managed to finish 23rd in yards allowed and 31st in points against during the 2010 season.

The best news is that Ryan's likely a short-term rental. He seemed like a lock to land some head coaching interviews this offseason, and possibly even a job. But it appears the teams in the market for a head coach didn't think the, ahem, shoe fit.

It probably worked out best for Ryan, though, because success in Dallas as the defensive coordinator would almost certainly mean a promotion is somewhere down the road.

"If some of the Dallas players don't show motivation Rex will put his FOOT where the light don't shine!"

It's not Rex you idiot, it's Rob. Get a clue.

If the shoe fits, wear it!
This is FOOTball at its best!
You know Ryan is not coming in to play FOOTsies!
If some of the Dallas players don't show motivation Rex will put his FOOT where the light don't shine!
Most say football is a game of inches.  When you're as big as the Ryans, it a game of FEET!
This guy is going to bring new meaning to the term "third and a FOOT".
If Garrett screws up this gut (guy) could be the HC.
Would the cheerleaders then have to go bareFOOT?
And when he talks with reporters, will he continue to put his FOOT in his mouth?
Fun is going to be back in FOOTball at Jerry's House!

Another loss by the Browns.  He was a good defensive coordinator.  He got average players to play strong for him.  If he had better talent, they would have consistently played better defensive.  The Browns are classic for not having talented players and then changing coaches like Tiger Woods changing his women...

To rwsjrss, as long as their are owners like Philadelphias Lurie, the Titans Bud Adams, and good balls like Al Davis, I think all the Ryans will get their chance.

With Rex's big mouth and his father's reputation as an "A" hole does it hurt Robbie's chances of becoming a Head Coach?
