Given the opportunity to give the defensive coordinator a vote of confidence at a news conference Tuesday, New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis instead danced around questions about Ryan’s future with the team, which gave up the second-most yards in the NFL in 2014 and missed the playoffs after a 7-9 finish.
