Let’s grade the Falcons’ decision to bring Dirk Koetter back as OC

Dirk Koetter is back with the Falcons as the team’s offensive coordinator. Whether you love or hate the move, there’s nothing to be done about it now except evaluate why the team went in this direction and how the move will work out for Atlanta.

Steve Sarkisian’s dismissal was expected, and there was some dread surrounding the possibility of a down year while Matt Ryan and the rest of the offense adjust to yet another coordinator. Bringing in Koetter does minimize that risk, which is good considering that Ryan and Julio are both getting to point in their careers where wasting a season would be acutely painful.
