They say pride comes before the fall.
It apparently comes after it, too.
Former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has confirmed that he has been fired, according to Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com.
“I’ll be out of work for like 5 minutes,” Rob Ryan told McMahon.
He may be right, but not every NFL coach will be thrilled about the prospect of hiring a defensive coordinator who tends to talk when maybe he shouldn’t. Still, Ryan is skilled at what he does. And with so many owners hiring coaches with offensive backgrounds, they’ll all need solid defensive coordinators. Rob Ryan instantly goes to the top of the list of available candidates.
