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.
