The Atlanta Falcons hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter as their next offensive coordinator on Tuesday. The 59-year-old went 19-29 in his three seasons as the head coach in Tampa. Their offense ranked first in the league in passing yards per game (320.3), third in yards per game (415.5) and 12th in scoring (24.8 points per game). Koetter was the offensive coordinator in Atlanta from 2012-14, so he's familiar with quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones. The Falcons had a top-10 passing attack each year that Koetter was in Atlanta. With Ryan, Jones and up-and-coming young receiver Calvin Ridley, the Falcons have one of the stronger offensive cores in the league, so Koetter is in a position to thrive.
