Rob Ryan arrived at Valley Ranch on Wednesday morning, looking like he's ready for work. The Cowboys have not officially announced Ryan's hiring, but sources have said an agreement has been reached for Ryan to become the team's defensive coordinator.
Ryan first will put together his defensive staff. Linebackers coach Reggie Herring is in Houston, interviewing for a position on the Texans' staff. He is expected to leave. Defensive line coach Paul Pasqualoni was named the University of Connecticut's head coach last week.
The Browns are expected to allow defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson, linebackers coach Matt Eberflus and defensive line coach Bryan Cox to leave. They served under Ryan in Cleveland the past two years.
