                  === Reports: Cowboys' Rob Ryan out as DC ===
 
 (Sports  Network) - The Dallas Cowboys fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan on
 Tuesday, according to multiple reports.
 
 Ryan  was  let  go  after  the  Cowboys missed  the  postseason  for  a  third
 consecutive year. His firing ends a two-year tenure with the team.
 
 Under  Ryan's  tutelage, the  Cowboys ranked  among the  league's top 20 total
 defenses,  placing 14th in 2011 but slipping to 19th in 2012, perhaps in large
 part as a result of injuries to many of Dallas' key defensive players.
 
 Ryan becomes the second casualty of the Cowboys' coaching staff. Running backs
 coach Skip Peete was fired on Monday.
