Rob Ryan and Cowboys could be perfect match

With Paul Pasqualoni taking the UConn head coaching job (a job that comes with a backdoor key to a BCS bowl) the Dallas Cowboys are in need of a new defensive coordinator. Fortunately for Jerry Jones, there will soon be a perfect candidate available : Rob Ryan.

According to Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Pat Shurmur’s hire as the Browns’ new head coach likely ensures Ryan’s departure from Cleveland’s defensive coordinator post. (Though still under contract, Ryan hasn’t been around the offices lately.)

Ryan, running a 3-4 scheme, did a masterful job taking Cleveland’s subpar defensive personnel and turning them into one of the league’s most complex units. This past season the Browns were the only NFL team not to allow 30 points in a game until Week 17. Last season, despite the absence of a premier pass-rusher, Cleveland was one of just three AFC teams to post 40 sacks.

The Cowboys have employed a 3-4 defense since 2003. Given the front seven personnel – namely outside linebackers DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer – new head coach Jason Garrett would likely prefer to keep the base scheme intact.

Ryan would be a popular and smart choice. And it sounds like Jerry Jones would agree. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are interested in Ryan’s services.

I'm a little concerned with the foot fettish thing.  Will this be a distraction?
