It was first reported Friday that Rob Ryan had been hired to be the St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator, but it now appears that that report may have been a tad premature.
Over the weekend, Ryan told ESPN Dallas’ Calvin Watkins in response to said report that he had not agreed to a new deal, and remains on vacation in Turks and Caicos--where he was when he got the call from Jason Garrett that he had been fired last Tuesday night.
"I'm on a beach and have talked to nobody and have no comment,” Ryan said.
It’s been a wild week for the Cowboys’ defense. Aside from the firing of Ryan, Dallas hired Monte Kiffin as his replacement, meaning that Dallas will move from the 3-4 back to the 4-3 in 2013.
