Jason La Canfora
Candidates for Falcons OC job include Dirk Koetter, Brian Billick, Tom Clements and Brian Schottenheimer. Interviews start soon

Billick, the brother-in-law of Falcons coach Mike Smith, is currently an NFL analyst for FOX, but he became famous as the offensive guru behind the 1999 Minnesota Vikings before becoming the Baltimore Ravens head coach for most of the last decade.

Koetter, the Jaguars OC, and Schottenheimer, the son of NFL coaching legend Marty and former Jets OC, are both candidates for the Alabama OC position as well.

Clements has been the QB coach of the Green Bay Packers since 2006, where he's been instrumental in developing Aaron Rodgers.
