Amazing news! Dirk Koetter will be back for at least one more season with the Atlanta Falcons as their OC. I think this is great. It is plain to see that Matt Ryan has flourished in the new system Dirk has brought with him. I feel though that soon Matt Ryan can become a quarterback like Peyton Manning and will not need a OC and will call his own plays. I do think that another year with Dirk can do nothing else but improve not only Matt but everyone on offense.

I still hold out hope for DC Mike Nolan to stay with the Falcons. It seems that most of the teams with head coaching openings are looking for a coach with an offensive background but it would not surprise me if he signed with one of those teams.
