Rob Ryan will be partying in New Orleans next month, but this time it’s in an official capacity.

The New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator, who often makes the scene in the Big Easy, will be the grand marshall of the Krewe of Argus in the Mardi Gras parade March 4.

“We are so excited to announce that Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will be riding as our grand marshal this year! Who Dat!!!” the krewe wrote on its Facebook page.

According to, Argus is a giant with 100 eyes in Green mythology.
