Rob Ryan, much like Randy Moss in Minnesota, is a programmatic non-fit

Posted by: Michael Rand under Professional football, Vikings Updated: January 29, 2013 - 12:13 PM

It sounded like Rob Ryan -- fired three weeks ago as Cowboys D-coordinator -- was going to land on his feet and be hired by the Rams. But, um, apparently he's a programmatic non-fit. Per ESPN.com:

The St. Louis Rams will not hire Rob Ryan as defensive coordinator after a second visit with the coaching staff Monday determined that his addition was not a good "scheme fit," according to coach Jeff Fisher.

Fisher noted that the team did not make an official announcement on the hiring of Ryan, but his team will publicly confirm that Ryan will not join the staff.

Last week, a source had told ESPN that Ryan would be hired as the Rams' defensive coordinator.

The boisterous Ryan was fired as defensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys on Jan. 8, soon after owner Jerry Jones said he would make major changes to a team that finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs.

After his ouster in Dallas, Ryan said, "I'll be out of work for like five minutes."
