With Paul Pasqualoni headed to Connecticut to be the head coach, the Cowboys are still looking for a defensive coordinator and the latest name to surface is Cleveland defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Two sources indicate the Cowboys will interview him Friday for the position.
The Cowboys have also been linked with Steelers secondary coach Ray Horton but they cannot talk to him until the Steelers are eliminated from the playoffs.
It also appears that the two candidates the Cowboys have spoken to so far are taking other jobs. Greg Manusky interviewed with the Cowboys on Wednesday but went to San Diego on Thursday and is leaning towards taking the job with the Chargers.
Stanford assistant Vic Fangio is apparently going to follow Jim Harbaugh to coach the San Francisco 49ers
