Dallas Cowboys Hire Defensive Coordinator

The Dallas Cowboys have hired a new defensive coordinator. During the week of the NFC Championship game, the Dallas Cowboys had all intentions on preparing to win the game, and play the Super Bowl in their home stadium; instead they finished a deal on a new coach. Their choice is the brother of New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan; Rob Ryan.

Ryan has spent many seasons in the National Football League. In his last job, Ryan was the defensive coordinator under Mark Mangini in Cleveland. The Browns defense finished 22nd overall. The Browns picked off 19 passes on the season, which was tied for 8th in the league.

Ryan takes over a defense that was not very good. For part of the season, Dallas was led by head coach Wade Phillips. Mid-season Jason Garrett took over and the team got better. Overall, the defense for Dallas allowed a franchise high 436 points during the regular season.

Former Defensive Coordinator Paul Pasqualoni left Dallas to become the next head coach at the University of Connecticut. Others that were interviewed for the position were Vic Fangio and Greg Manusky.
