Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that a league source has informed him that Mike Tice will be the Falcons new offensive line coach.
Tice’s last position was with the Chicago Bears as their offensive coordinator. He and Lovie Smith were fired at the conclusion of the 2012 season and Tice ultimately sat out a year.
He inherits one of the worst offensive lines in league, which is similar to the situation he oversaw in Chicago.
The good news for Tice is that the Falcons must know that they need to drastically upgrade the talent level of this unit if they are return to the success they had in 2012.
