Don't get your hopes up.

the best defensive coordinator in the game, following in the footsteps of our last 2. and he will probably follow in their footsteps and get a head coaching job.

If he and his brother are like their father, they should stay as D coordinaters.

good move by them

He deserves to be rewarded.

He can still walk for a head coaching job, so it's not like he's locked up to stay in Baltimore. Although it is certainly a sign that he likes coaching there.

This doesn't mean a thing he could still leave for a HC position.....like what was mentioned in the previous post

go_ravens94 04-21-2007 08:36 PM

Yeah, but we have him for one more year, and that's all that matters.

I like Rex, but I question how hard it is to coordinate a defense with that much talent. I mean...you really can't screw up when you have talent on the field like that. You can call just about any play and it will work.

I actually like his brother Rob more. He worked under Bellichick, and has a proven track record with lesser talent. On Oakland none the less, a team that doesn't take well to coaching.

Im eyeing Rob Ryan as a sleeper replacement for Coughlin if we fire him after this year and the bigger names don't come to NY.

Its only giving him a pay raise for the job he did last year and if he does an equal job this year he'll be a head coach in 08.

So they've given the mad scientist a new deal? Cool. I think he'll make a great head coach at some point in the near future. We'll have to see though..

Smart move, Ryan has built a great defense.

bsaza2358 04-23-2007 10:59 AM

Baltimore realizes that Ryan is, at worst, a solid D-coordinator, and they are paying him enough that he will consider staying for another year or 2. He can always negotiate another extension after next season if he doesn't move up to become a head coach. He has an excellent pedigree, and he will earn his salary with the Ravens this next season.

I like the move.

gbpackers0065 04-23-2007 11:30 AM

i still dont understand how he is not a head coach yet...hopefully he get a job in 1 or 2 years

bsaza2358 04-23-2007 11:39 AM

There's no shame in being a well-paid and respected coordinator.
