Bob Bratkowski To Become Atlanta Falcons QB Coach, Replacing Bill Musgrave

Bob Bratkowski, son of Georgia Bulldogs All-American QB Zeke Bratkowski, has agreed to join the Atlanta Falcons coaching staff as the new quarterbacks coach, the team announced via Twitter. Bratkowski was previously the Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator from 2001 to 2010 until being fired two weeks ago.

He guided Cincy to several of its best offensive seasons ever, though his past three years with the Bengals were less than impressive. Injuries could be blamed for some of that decline, as could the fact that we’re talking about the Cincinnati Bengals. Still, remember when Carson Palmer was awesome?

Bratkowski has also worked on the staffs of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks, including a four-year stint as Seattle’s offensive coordinator under Dennis Erickson in the ‘90s. In Seattle, his offenses ranked in the league’s top 10 twice. He was also Erickson’s Miami Hurricanes OC from 1989 to 1991, reaching the top 16 in the nation all three years.

He’s never held a quarterbacks coach position before.
