(KSDK Sports) -- Still no official announcement from the Rams. The organization's top brass are in Mobile, Alabamafor Saturday's "Senior Bowl," but next week we should officially hear the announcement the Rams have hired former Dallas Cowboy defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to take over the same position here.

Sometimes it's good to just keep it all in the family. Jeff Fisher learned at the feet of Buddy Ryan and now Buddy's son Rob will come work for Fisher as the Rams new defensive coordinator.

Ryan is passionate on the sidelines and he leads his defenses the same way. He and Fisher have the same philosophy, they both want to be aggressive.

And it doesn't matter what the Rams run, a 4-3 or a 3-4, it's all about coaching the players you have.

Bottom line?Ryan has talent, and it should show working with a mentorsuch as Jeff Fisher.

On Friday, Frank Cusumano sat down with Jim Ryan, Rob Ryan's older brother who happens to live in St. Louis. Ryan had much to say about his younger sibling taking over the Rams defense.
