Another interesting hire for Ravens. They have hired Rob Ryan to coach ILBs. Rob is the brother of former Ravens DC Rex Ryan.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) January 22, 2021
This is the second coaching hire that the Ravens have made today; Anthony Weaver was hired as the new defensive line coach/run game coordinator.
Rob Ryan is, of course, the brother of Rex Ryan. Rex Ryan was the Ravens’ defensive coordinator from 2005-2008.
As for Rob Ryan, this will be his first stint with the Ravens. Ryan has had eight different NFL coaching jobs, since 1994. Most notably, he was the linebackers coach for the New England Patriots for their Super Bowl XXXVI and XXXVIII victories in 2002 and 2004. His most recent job was as the inside linebackers coach for the Washington Football Team in 2019.
Ryan will coach a young group of inside linebackers with a lot of potential that includes Patrick Queen, Malik Harrison, and Chris Board.
