NFL Rumors: Will Dallas Cowboys Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan Get A Head Coaching Job?
With the Dallas Cowboys having some success this year, along comes the notion that defensive coordinator Rob Ryan may be in line for a head coaching job in the off-season. Ryan’s defense is in the middle of the pack of most defensive categories but his unit has also been riddled with injuries and still performed admirably.
There is also the belief that Ryan is a great leader and players respond to his type of coaching and attitude. It has worked to some degree with his brother Rex Ryan as the head coach for the New York Jets, so there is enough of a sample size for other team’s to follow.
If the Cowboys make the playoffs, there will likely be more than one suitor for Ryan’s services. There could be as many 10 team’s looking for a new head coach this off-season and Ryan is sure to be a name many owners will want to talk to. Ryan has helped more than a few defenses over-achieve in his career and even though his units in Dallas aren’t what many people thought they would be, players swear by Ryan’s coaching. Count DeMarcus Ware and Sean Lee among his biggest supporters.
Ryan has said he’s like a head coaching job sooner rather than later and it looks as though he’ll get an opportunity to interview for a few open positions when this season ends. He is ready to be a head coach and I don’t see him turning down any offer he gets like Jason Garrett did a few years ago.
The Cowboys have more pressing things to prepare for right now but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Rob Ryan become a head coach somewhere next year.

Falcons fans are the real deal. Through thick and thin, ups and downs, wins and losses, the Falcons faithful are always there, even if they're a little angry.
