Two weeks ago when New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton announced that he was firing his defensive coordinator and overhauling the defense's scheme, tons of names were thrown around as the replacement for Steve Spagnuolo.

One name -- Rob Ryan -- appeared to be a long shot at best.

But after using some of the time since his reinstatement on Jan. 22 from his season-long bounty suspension to find the best fit to spearhead the Saints' change from a 4-3 defensive scheme to a 3-4 alignment, Payton apparently has narrowed his search to a couple of candidates.

And Ryan, who is set to interview on Friday according to a league source, has emerged as the front-runner to land the job, although Payton said Wednesday morning there is no clear favorite.
