Not so fast - Rams won't hire Rob Ryan as DC after all

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Rams announced Tuesday that Rob Ryan will not run their defense in 2013.

"After extensive conversations regarding defensive philosophy, the Rams and Rob Ryan agreed he was not the right fit for the club's defensive coordinator position," COO/Executive VP of Football Operations Kevin Demoff told the team website. "The Rams will continue the interview process with the club'€™s other candidates.

No details were given, but Ryan does prefer a 3-4 scheme to the Rams' 4-3. That could have been the difference in philosophy, but it's odd the team didn't deny the reports last week and have now called them premature. Something changed in the last five days.

The Eagles and Saints are the lone teams left without a defensive coordinator on staff. Ryan's five minutes might turn into much more if he can't make a late push for one of those two jobs, or isn't willing to take a lesser position.
