Appearing on ESPN's NFL Insiders Monday, Chris Mortensen reported Saints DC Rob Ryan's long hair is considered an impediment to landing a head-coaching job.
Mort's report is via "several NFL executives," including an owner. Although Ryan's flowing, silver locks are unusual for an NFL coach, we highly doubt it's the reason he's never risen to the ranks of head coach. The 2013 Saints are the first team Ryan's coordinated to reach the playoffs, while he's been with four clubs since 2008. Like his brother Rex, Rob is a strong defensive mind, but we expect him to be back as Sean Payton's coordinator for 2014. He hasn't been linked to any head-coaching vacancies. Jan 13 - 4:07 PM

Saints hired Rob Ryan as defensive coordinator.

Ryan's name first appeared on the Saints' radar as a candidate earlier this week after he briefly flirted with the Rams. Ryan faces the tall task of turning around the league's 32nd ranked defense. The Saints will transition to a 3-4 under Ryan, and will almost certainly have to revamp their front-seven personnel. Cameron Jordan and Akiem Hicks are building blocks on the defensive line.
