It's official, Rob Ryan is heading to New Orleans. Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reported the Saints have hired Ryan to fill their defensive coordinator opening.

Ryan was the favorite after things didn't work out with the St. Louis Rams. University of Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham interviewed Thursday, but withdrew his name from consideration.

It's been an odd offseason for the former Dallas Cowboys coordinator. He was unceremoniously fired in Dallas, then hired/not hired in St. Louis. Now he lands in New Orleans, which might be the best spot of the three. Ryan won't have to win games with his defense, since Drew Brees runs one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL. The 2012 season for the Saints broke a three-year run of playoff berths, and was more of a fluke as a result of of the bounty suspensions.
