The New Orleans Saints have found a new defensive coordinator it would appear. Rob Ryan who was relieved of his duties by the and famously said he’d be out of work for all of 5 minutes. It took a lot longer than 4 minutes. The St. Louis Rams almost brought him a board but ultimately decided to go a different way over philosophical defensive differences.

Citing league sources Adam Schefter tweeted that Ryan was indeed headed to New Orelans.

However Pro Football Talk said that it might not be such a “done deal.”

Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported that the Saints will interview Ryan on Friday, a day after they interview Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham.

Pro Football Talk wittingly says that they can confirm that Rob Ryan to New Orleans is “basically a done deal” but we all saw how that went last time for Ryan. Mike Napoli and his contract negotiations with the Boston Red Sox were basically a done deal at one point too but that dragged on.

    You’re going to quote Larry Holder? For days every article he wrote had
    the same drivel about Sean Payton going to Dallas to coach.

    I also wouldn’t call Larry mentioning “Coach Cowboy Boots” having an
    interview with the Saints “reporting”, at best it mean’s he’s learned
    how to find the Saints twitter feed.

    As far as Adam Schefter and his bosom buddies at the league office
    go, you’re going to seriously say you think Sean Payton is going to
    share with Roger Goodell’s office who he plans to hire? Yeah, right.
