Redskins Hire Rob Ryan to Coach Teams Inside Linebackers

Rob Ryan has returned to the NFL as the inside linebackers coach for the Redskins according to the team’s official website.

The 56-year-old less famous Ryan last coached in the NFL as assistant head coach/defense on his brother Rex’s staff with the Buffalo Bills.

Prior to that, Ryan was the Saints’ defensive coordinator from 2013-2015, which was mostly a failure. Ryan has the “name”, but he has long overseen some weak defenses. He will work closely with Reuben Foster and Zach Brown and may have some say in the defensive plan.

    One would think GREG MANUSKY could do pretty well as LB’s coaching as he was once one himself.

    Hope springs eternal however.

    Now we have a new one in ROB RYAN. Hopefully he will be an improvement over KIRK O.

    Tennessee Titans: Marcus Mariota. With a new head coach (Mike Vrabel) and more stability at running back (with starter Derrick Henry and third-down back Dion Lewis), now is the time for Mariota to take a major step forward. Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA Washington Redskins: Alex Smith. The veteran passer is getting his shot with a third NFL team, but will he finally get respect? The Redskins seem excited about Smith s leadership and locker room demeanor, and his running ability gives head coach Jay Gruden the chance to expand his attack. Now it s up to Smith, who doesn t have quite the caliber of weapons around him in Washington as he did in Kansas City, to capitalize on the opportunity. Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports
