The Saints have been on the lookout for a new defensive coordinator, and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, they have found their man.

Schefter reports the team will ink former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan as the new man to run the Saints D in 2013.

Ryan was canned by the Cowboys after the season, and then it was thought he would have a job with the St.Louis Rams, but Jeff Fisher and co. passed on him stating he didn’t fit what they wanted to do.

The other name that came up for the position was former Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel, but it sounds like Sean Payton has his man, that being Ryan.
