Rob Ryan ate McDonald’s immediately after quitting Rams

As you may recall, Rob Ryan took the job as Rams defensive coordinator this past January, signing on to run Jeff Fisher’s slacking unit. The gig lasted about as long as a Kardashian marriage — 6,899 minutes — before Ryan resigned and eventually landed in the Big Easy.

And it turns out Ryan celebrated unemployment in the most Ryan-like way possible, reports’s Michael Silver.

According to Silver’s account, Ryan entered Fisher’s office at 7:30 a.m., dropped his keys on the desk and told the coach he wanted out. Meanwhile, Fisher’s other assistants were in a staff meeting with a window that looked out on the parking lot.

The Rams’ coaches watched Ryan leave the building and head across the street to a McDonald’s. Ryan “goes to get a Big Mac and never comes back,” Silver said.

Coincidentally, Ryan returns on Sunday, when the Saints march into the Edward Jones Dome for a late afternoon game against the Rams. The Saints will be gunning for win No. 12; Ryan a No. 1 — with everything on it.
