Update: DeMeco Ryans not interviewing for head coaching jobs on 49ers-Cowboys game day, per source

On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans would interview with the Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts ahead of the team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

"He's going to do those interviews prior to kickoff tomorrow against the Cowboys," Fowler said on-air. "It's a crazy 72-hour window for Ryans. People around the league believe he has traction in Houston. He played six years there, was a great player, played alongside J.J. Watt and others, well respected. ... Ryans will be firmly in the mix on multiple jobs."


Johnny Venerable, a reporter for the Arizona Cardinals, stated that one of the interviews would take place on Sunday morning. Venerable's tweet (pictured below) has since been deleted.


Understandably, these reports were met with criticism from 49ers fans, who feel an interview on game day, just ahead of a crucial playoff matchup, is too much of a distraction.

A reliable source stated this information to be false. Ryans is not interviewing with teams on Sunday morning. The source did not state when the interviews with the Cardinals and Colts would occur, if they haven't already.

Ryans has already met with the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans about their head coaching vacancies. The assistant coach has been with the 49ers since 2017, replacing current New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh as defensive coordinator in 2021.

The San Francisco 49ers are gearing up to secure their franchise quarterback with a significant contract next year. When that happens, Brock Purdy will become one of the NFL's highest-paid players—potentially even the highest-paid. However, sports commentator Rich Eisen predicts that Purdy's reign as the highest-paid player won't last long. When asked who will earn the highest average salary starting in 2025, Eisen explained that while Purdy might initially hold the top spot, Prescott's deal will eventually top it. "Oh, it's going to be Dak Prescott," Eisen said. "Absolutely, it's going to be Dak Prescott. ... Purdy is going to wind up the number one paid quarterback in the NFL. And I just don't think he will be by the end of the day because Dak,
