Cowboys Make Ryan Hiring Official

The Cowboys have officially announced that Rob Ryan is the defensive coordinator after interviewing with Jason Garrett on Friday and agreeing to the job over the weekend. The team did not divulge the length of Ryan’s contract according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.

Ryan arrived at the team’s Valley Ranch facility Wednesday morning for work. Garrett interviewed Vic Fangio and Greg Manusky for the coordinator spot before talking to Ryan. Fangio joined San Francisco and Manusky joined San Diego, while Paul Pasqualoni, who finished the year as Cowboys defensive coordinator, left to be the head coach at the University of Connecticut.

Ryan has been a coordinator for the past seven years in Oakland (2004-08) and Cleveland (2009-10) after winning two Super Bowl rings as New England’s linebackers coach from 2000-2003.
