Rob Ryan rumor picking up steam? 


Greetings, all. A friend sent me a picture he took of Sean Payton talking tonight with Rob Ryan in DFW Airport.

Maybe they were just trading recipes. But maybe not.

Good luck next year.

Re: Rob Ryan rumor picking up steam? 


This a done deal.  All this other stuff is for show.  I don't know why there is not a Rooney Rule for Assistant Coaches.

When Ryan heard that the Saints were going to the 3-4 he put the brakes on the Rams job and talked to Payton to express his interest.  After talkjing to Payton he informed the Rams that he was no longer interested in their opening.

I would be more than shocked if Ryan was not on the sideline for New Orleans next year.

I bet the major holdup is they are talkjing about what assistant coaches that Ryan might be able to bring in to help impliment the 3-4 defense.

Payton is an extremly loyal guy and is not going to be interested in letting his defensive coaches go.  We know that Spags was the DC and the DB coach was released that had come with him.  Now it is possible that they are looking to move some people around.

You know that Joe Vitt is not going anywhere as he is Payton right hand man.  Payton would quit first.  Know Vitt has always coached the Linebackers but has done so in the 4-3 defense. 

Right now you have

Bill Johnson (Defensive Line)
Joe Vitt (Linebackers)

You have several assistants to the coaches.  (Never really noticed before, but each coach has his own assistant)

Travis Jones Asst Defensive Line Coach
Andre Curtis Asst Secondary Coach
Brian Young Asst Defensive Coach/Linebackers
Marcus Ungaro Asst Defensive Coach
