PHOTO: Turns out, Rob Ryan is really Kenny Powers

By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com

This explains a lot. Turns out, Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is Eastbound & Down star Kenny Powers, the halfro, all-mullet former professional baseball player who flamed out before eventually taking jobs as a substitute gym teacher, rental car employee, sports talk show yapper -- and, now we find out, Patriots' linebackers coach -- in an effort to recapture his fame.

Judge for yourself:

Yep, same dude. The shirt confirms it. (HBO)

And that development goes a long way in explaining this one: Ryan's primary mode of transportation (at least when he was with the Cowboys): A 1999 Econoline van. Of course it is.
