Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter has become a popular candidate for three head coaching vacancies. A source told FOXSports.com that Koetter is set to interview this week with Kansas City, Philadelphia and Cleveland. All three squads made head coaching changes Monday with the respective firings of Romeo Crennel, Andy Reid and Pat Shurmur. Koetter, 53, interviewed with Denver last January before the Broncos hired John Fox. Koetter previously served as a college head coach at Boise State (1998 to 2000) and Arizona State (2001 to 2006). Hired by Atlanta in the 2012 offseason following five years as Jacksonville's offensive coordinator, Koetter helped the Falcons field the most prolific passing offense in franchise history with a 281.8-yard average. Matt Ryan posted career-highs in yardage (4,719), touchdowns (32) and completion percentage (68.6) under Koetter's tutelage. Koetter is set to interview while helping the Falcons prepare for a January 13 second-round playoff game against an opponent that will be determined by the results of this weekend's opening-round contests.
