FOOTBALL Rams not hiring Ryan The St. Louis Rams have decided not to hire former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan as defensive coordinator and stepped in a new direction by hiring Frank Bush as linebackers coach. Bush replaces Blake Williams, son of Gregg Williams, who was briefly defensive coordinator with the Rams last winter before being suspended indefinitely for his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal. Bush was with the Tennessee Titans the past two seasons and prior to that was defensive coordinator for four seasons with the Houston Texans. He has also been a player, scout, position coach and assistant head coach.
