The Miami Herald immediately shot down those rumors, reporting that the team has not reached out to any potential candidates about replacing current defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle, whose future is still being thought over by head coach Joe Philbin.
Coyle has been with the team for the past three seasons. The Dolphins ranked 12th in total defense this season and gave up 23 points per game, including 28 or more points in each of their last four games.
Ryan was fired Monday after six seasons as the Jets head coach and has said that he is not interested in any defensive coordinator positions.
According to the NFP report, the Dolphins offered Ryan a multi-year deal worth about $8 million.
