Dirk Koetter Officially Named New Atlanta Falcons Offensive Coordinator

The Atlanta Falcons have confirmed an earlier report by officially announcing Dirk Koetter as the team's new offensive coordinator. Koetter has served as the offensive coordinator of the Jacksonville Jaguars since 2007.

Koetter oversaw one of the NFL's worst offensive teams in the Jaguars this season but admittedly didn't have a lot to work with. Former Jaguars quarterback David Garrard had the two best seasons of his career under Koetter.

Koetter had been sought after this offseason by Kansas for its then vacant head coaching position and Alabama for its offensive coordinator position. He brings experience from coaching stints with Arizona State and Boise State to the Falcons.
