It appears that Rob Ryan's days as Defensive Coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys are over. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones notified Ryan that his days as a DC in Dallas are over. Ryan had one year remaining on a three-year contract.
Statistically speaking, the Dallas defense was not good last season.... finishing 17th against the run, 21st against the pass and 19th overall.
The Cowboys gave up at least 28 points in four of their final six games.
Dallas was Ryan's fourth job in the NFL, before that he had served as Defensive Coordinator in Cleveland and in Oakland, and had coached linebackers in New England.
