Falcons Offer Offensive Coordinator Job To Dirk Koetter


D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Falcons have offered Dirk Koetter their offensive coordinator job.

A high-ranking team official tells Ledbetter that there is no agreement in place at this time.

Rick Stroud hears Koetter is likely to accept the Falcons’ job.

The Falcons also interviewed former Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell and former Titans HC Mike Mularkey for the position, but it appears as though Koetter is their pick.

Koetter, 59, began his NFL coaching career as the Jaguars’ offensive coordinator back in 2007. After five years in Jacksonville, he was hired as the Falcons’ offensive coordinator and later joined Lovie Smith’s staff in the same role for the 2015 season.

The Buccaneers elected to move on from Smith after two seasons and made the decision to elevate Koetter to head coach.

During his three years as the Buccaneers’ head coach, Koetter led the team to a record of 19-29 (38.77 percent) and no playoff appearances.
