Rob Ryan was one of the first coaches to be fired by the Dallas Cowboys as they make offseason changes. The brash Ryan told reporters that he would be unemployed for “like five minutes.” In reality, Rob Ryan has been unemployed for a few weeks now, and has really generated little interest around the league. On January 12, rumors suggested that Ryan was going to be hired by the St. Louis Rams.
Shortly after those rumors surfaced, both the Rams and Ryan, who was on vacation at the time, denied the reports.
Now, it appears that Ryan and the Rams have had some dialogue. Jason LaCanfora reported on Twitter that the two sides have met but that Ryan left St. Louis without a formal contract offer. The Rams are discussing adding a defensive coordinator to fill the vacancy created by Gregg Williams being suspended by the league at the start of the regular season.

While Jerry fiddles and (Jim) Rome burns, the Dallas Cowboys have quietly passed the torch to other teams. Like an Olympic runner carrying the torch (if the runner was falling down drunk and weaving in and out of traffic), Jerry has passed the Super Bowl supremacy torch to some of the Cowboys’ most hated rivals.
While the Steelers were the first team to reach four...

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that the new offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will take over as the team’s play-caller in 2013.
