Rams are set to hire Rob Ryan

Stop if you’ve heard this one before – the Rams are hiring Rob Ryan as their new defensive coordinator.

Nothing’s official yet.

But this time the Rams are hiring Ryan, and it could be made official as early as today when Ryan is due in town. The brother of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan and son of legendary NFL coach Buddy Ryan interviewed with Rams coach Jeff Fisher last week.

Fisher has known the Ryan family since his days as a safety with the Chicago Bears in the early 1980s.

It is debatable — some around the NFL would say highly debatable — whether Ryan can take a Rams defense that flirted with top 10 status in 2012 to the next step.

In nine seasons as a defensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders, Ryan has had only one top 10 defense and never has been a coordinator on a playoff team. Recently fired by Dallas, Ryan’s defenses had anywhere between nine and 13 players on the field at various times with the Cowboys.
