Ryan interviewed for the job on Friday, a little more than a week after his apparent hiring in St. Louis with the Rams fell apart. The Saints are expected to transition to a 3-4 defense with their new coordinator. The Saints also hired Stan Kwan as an assistant special teams coach.
“I'm pleased the opportunity has presented itself for us to be able to add both Rob Ryan and Stan Kwan to our coaching staff," Payton said in a statement released by the club. "In regards to Rob, we have experience in preparing and playing against his defenses and they've always been challenging in terms of the different looks and pressures that they feature. We've had the chance to visit with each other and talk about our visions for our team and I'm excited about moving forward as we prepare for the 2013 season.Full Story

Lets go with it. From what I've read, he has always had handcuffs on his defense and he's never been able to do, not that I know what it is, so lets go.
