Rob Ryan has been announced as the new Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator by DallasCowboys.com’s Nick Eatman. The former Cleveland Browns DC, Ryan was hired to the Cowboys job at some point Wednesday. No word yet on contract details at this point.
The wait is over. After interviewing for the position last Friday, Rob Ryan has officially been named defensive coordinator of the Cowboys on Wednesday.
Reports of Ryan taking the job have been circulating for a while. Eatman points out that though Ryan was the third coach the Cowboys interviewed for the job, that doesn’t necessarily mean he was Jerry Jones’ third choice. Ryan wasn’t able to interview until Pat Shurmur was hired as Cleveland’s coach.
Former NFL players Jerome Henderson and Bryan Cox are also mentioned as potential assistants. Blogging The Boys mentions Don Martindale as another potential hire.
