Dirk Koetter, formerly of the Jacksonville Jaguars, agreed to terms on Sunday to become the Falcons new offensive coordinator, the team confirmed.  Koetter, 52, was Jacksonville’s offensive coordinator from 2007 to 2011. He will replace Mike Mularkey, who left to become Jacksonville’s head coach. Smith is high on Koetter’s work and how running back Maurice Jones-Drew led the league in rushing while the Jaguars had a rookie quarterback and an anemic passing attack. Koetter was head coach in the college ranks at Boise State and Arizona State. The Sun Devils’ vertical passing attack helped him land the offensive coordinator position with Jacksonville. At Arizona State he had four winning seasons and went to four bowl games. Tweet –D.
