ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The Rams are in the market for a new defensive coordinator once again. The plan to hire Rob Ryan is no longer the plan. The team made the announcement Tuesday morning via twitter saying “After extensive conversations regarding defensive philosophy, the Rams and Rob Ryan agreed he was not the right fit for the DC position. The Rams will continue the interview process with the clubs other candidates for the defensive coordinator position.”
Ryan had accepted the Rams position late last week and was in St.Louis over the weekend. There were initial questions as to whether he could adapt his philosophy to the Rams 4-3 style. Ryan was running a 3-4 scheme in Dallas, where he coached last year.
