Rams reportedly turn to Dick Jauron in search for defensive coordinator

Wednesday January 30th, 2013

The St. Louis Rams' search for a new defensive coordinator is expected to focus on fired Cleveland Browns DC Dick Jauron, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The Rams reportedly hired former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan on Thursday before announcing Tuesday that he wasn't a fit when it comes to schemes.

Jauron was officially fired by the Browns on Monday, 10 days after new coach Rob Chudzinski hired former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton.

Jauron, the former head coach of the Buffalo Bills (2006-09) and Chicago Bears (1999-2003), also has terms as defensive coordinator of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Detroit Lions on his NFL resume.
