Well yeah, if you go back in time, he was a great coordinator, but it has been 6-7 years since he had a good NFL defense. He was terrible during this last college stint with Tennessee and USC. Whether or not he can bounce back from those down years is yet to be seen, but I doubt he's going to come in and fix a dysfunctional team in one offseason. It happens sometimes, but not often, and I would think it's even less likely with Jerry Jones at the helm making picks. Sure he should be better than Rob Ryan, but that's not saying much. I seriously doubt this Dallas defense is top 10 in points against next year.
