Hiring, by the Rams, confirmed on Jan. 24 at 4:01 p.m. Subsequent firing reported and confirmed five days later, at 11 a.m. on January 29th.

If you take Rob Ryan's original statement as being about how long he would be unemployed during the entire NFL offseason, he missed the mark by about 38,641 minutes. He was probably pretty liquored up when he made that estimate though, so let's not split hairs.
