The Atlanta Falcons continue to shake things up in the offseason with another coaching hire. The Atlanta Falcons have made six coaching moves since the start of January, the latest being the hiring of former Fresno State head coach Pat Hill. Hill, 60, was the head coach at Fresno State from 1997-2011, posting a career 112-80 overall record. Hill has been hired as the Atlanta Falcons offensive line coach, a role he filled in the NFL previously in the NFL before being hired at Fresno State. He coached the offensive line and tight ends for the Cleveland Browns (1992-1995) and the Baltimore Ravens (1996).
After a disappointing season and another year of being one and done in the playoffs, the Falcons have shaken things up with their coaching staff.
Offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey is gone, assuming the role of head coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Quarterbacks coach Bob Bratkowski has departed, joining Mularkey to fill the role of offensive coordinator for the Jaguars. Dirk Koetter will assume the duties of offensive coordinator.
Defensive coordinator Brian VanGoeder has become the defensive coordinator for the University of Auburn, replaced by Mike Nolan.
