Suddenly Dirk Koetter's Hire Seems Better

One of the readers mentioned this (I forget who because I'm lame and time frames and such) but with Mike Nolan coming to the ATL to be our DC, suddenly you wonder if Dirk Koetter was such a "bad choice" after all?

Nevermind all the hoopla surrounding who we interviewed and who we didn't, it's clear that the front office is doing whatever it can to bring in the best coaches it can to make sure we're going to be winners.

I've read up on Koetter a little and I feel like he's a very smart man. I don't remember Mularkey giving any kind of interview when he came to the Falcons and I'm sure with the recent press conference he gave (relatively recent) it's safe to say Mularkey probably wasn't the best man for the job in 2012, and that's putting it mildly.

But with the hire of Mike Nolan showing the FO is wanting to get the best man for the job, I think we should all take a step back and let our new offensive coordinator give it a whirl before we look solely at his credentials and judge him based on that. He's given several interviews that have suggested he's a man who will adapt and use our talent correctly, and heck, his offense is called the four verticals. What part of that doesn't sound awesome?
