DeMeco Ryans is an American football coach and former linebacker who is the head coach for the Houston Texans of the National Football League. Ryans played college football at the University of Alabama, where he was named a unanimous All-American.

Ryans was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles on March 20, 2012, for a 2012 fourth-round draft pick (used by Ben Jones) and a third-round choice (used by Nick Foles and Brandon Brooks) from each team.

Ryans became the team’s starting middle linebacker right away. Ryans made plays even though the Eagles were 4-12. He had 113 tackles, led the team, and had an interception and a sack.

Jamila Ryans, whom DeMeco Ryans reportedly met while playing for the Houston Texans, is DeMeco Ryans’s wife. They are said to have tied the knot on June 29, 2013, in Pearland, Texas.

Jamila is a director of the DeMeco Ryans Foundation and a registered nurse. She is on Instagram @jamilaryans where she has 435 supporters, notwithstanding, her record is set to private.

Her bio says We are not afraid that we are not good enough; Our greatest fear is that we have unimaginable power.

Together, DeMeco and Jamila Ryan have three children: two children called MJ and Micah, and a little girl, Xia. On her Instagram account, Jamila posts a picture of all three of them with DeMeco.

Since they are all children, we know only that they attend a prestigious private school. There is less information about his children.

However, the Ryan family generally avoids the spotlight, and DeMeco does not use social media.

Ryans made even more progress in 2013, finishing second on the team with 127 tackles and setting career highs in sacks (4.0), interceptions (two), and interception return yardage (46).

On January 4, 2014, in his first playoff game with the Eagles, a close 26-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints, he recorded 10 tackles and his first career playoff interception.

After tearing his Achilles tendon, Ryans was placed on injured reserve on November 3, 2014. On February 24, 2016, Ryans was released.
