Falcons' Dirk Koetter a hot name
By Pat Yasinskas
The Atlanta Falcons' offensive success during a 13-3 season could come at a price.
Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter will interview with the Kansas City Chiefs for their head-coaching vacancy, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. The Falcons already have granted the Chiefs permission to talk to Koetter and the interview reportedly will take place Tuesday.
There also is a report that Koetter will interview for the vacancy with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cleveland Browns are also reportedly interested in Koetter.
Assistants on playoff teams with a bye can interview for jobs as head coaches this week.
This isn’t a huge surprise because Koetter was expected to be one of the "hot" names this offseason. He’s had success as a coordinator and has been a head coach on the college level.
Koetter joined the Falcons this season after Mike Mularkey left to become the head coach in Jacksonville.
