Chris Mortensen reports that the St Louis Rams have changed their mind regarding the decision to hire Rob Ryan as their defensive coordinator.
“It wasn’t a scheme fit,” said Rams head coach Jeff Fisher.
Mortensen adds that the decision came after meeting with Ryan again on Monday.
Just a few weeks ago, this seemed like a done deal and, in fact, it was reported as such. To be honest, it did seem a little strange that they were planning on hiring someone who’s primary experience is with a 3-4 defense. The Rams are well suited for the 4-3 system that they’ve been running, so it will be interesting to see where they turn in regards to their defensive coordinator position.
The Saints and Eagles are both looking for a 3-4 defensive coordinator, so there’s at least a chance that Ryan could be brought in for an interview.
