Falcons’ offseason Addressing Dirk Koetter finding success in the trenches

The Falcons hired former Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter as their offensive coordinator, the team announced Tuesday.

Koetter was sacked by the Buccaneers after the team's season-ending 34-32 loss to the Falcons.

Prior to his head coaching position with the Bucs, Koetter spent nine seasons as an National Football League offensive coordinator. Despite the club's overall struggles, Tampa Bay's offense was consistently unsafe during Koetter's tenure and improved every season, from 18th to ninth to third in total offense.

Even though he didn't win in Tampa, there was no doubting Koetter's acumen running an offense.

"We are fired up to have Dirk join our staff as our offensive coordinator", head coach Dan Quinn said.

Mularkey was the Falcons offensive coordinator (pictured below) from 2008-11. In 2008, Ryan's rookie season in Atlanta, the Falcons ranked second in rushing yards per game, 10th in scoring per game, and sixth in total yards per game.

The Falcons quickly engaged Koetter, and the only real question appeared to be whether Koetter, who will turn 60 next month, wanted to coach in 2019.
