The Atlanta Falcons made a big move on Monday, as they have reportedly hired Kyle Shanahan as their new offensive coordinator. The Falcons still have not officially hired a head coach, but all signs point to Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn getting the job. Quinn will have his second interview with Atlanta on Monday but that could just be an opportunity for both sides to firm things up. He cannot be officially hired until Seattle’s season is over.
Shanahan has developed into a solid offensive game-planner and usually has solid schemes. He has seven years of experience as an offensive coordinator and was at the helm of the Cleveland Browns’ offense in 2014. The Browns were solid offensively for about the first half of the season before things fell apart. Still, with Brian Hoyer at quarterback and missing top receiver Josh Gordon, Shanahan managed to make Cleveland’s offense competitive.
