DeMarcus Ware said Thursday that he wasn't pleased to learn that Rob Ryan had been fired earlier this month. Ryan, the Cowboys' defensive coordinator the previous two seasons, always seemed to be popular among the players he coached in Dallas.
"He was one of the best coaches I've ever played for, really teaching me how to play and think like a linebacker," Ware said on the Mike & Mike in the Morning show on Dallas' 103.3 KESN-FM. "I had to go in there and know all of the drops that the inside backers would have, I would have to know all of the formations, so knowing the skill of the game, he really taught me that a lot."
Ware called Ryan's departure "a business deal" and added that "there's nothing that I can do about it, so you got to just get out there and play."
When briefly mentioning new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin's 4-3 scheme, Ware said he'll be able to be more aggressive up front as he moves from outside linebacker to defensive end.
