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 NFL.com’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.
