The Jaguars and Falcons are essentially trading offensive coaches.
Mike Mularkey has taken over the Jaguars coaching staff, and now former Jaguars offensive coordinator has landed on his feet in Atlanta.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Dirk Koetter will take over as Falcons offensive coordinator. Koetter and Falcons coach Mike Smith worked together in Jacksonville in 2007.
It was believed that Brian Schottenheimer was also a candidate in Atlanta. Brian Billick was also rumored to be a consideration.
Koetter’s offenses in Jacksonville weren’t exactly explosive or creative, although Koetter didn’t have a ton of talent to work with. We suspect he’ll be a little more aggressive through the air than Mularkey was with the Falcons.
