Wade Harman, who spent last season as the assistant offensive line coach, will return to a more familiar position in the season ahead, per Vaughn McClure.

This is actually Harman's wheelhouse. From 2000 to 2013, he coached tight ends for the Ravens, nurturing and developing great players like Shannon Sharpe, Todd Heap and Dennis Pitta. The Falcons only have Levine Toilolo under contract and could be looking at another draft pick at tight end at this year, so a coach who can develop those players will be key. Toilolo's basic skill set and height make him worth another shot, at the very least. The Falcons will hope his sterling track record in Baltimore will carry over to Atlanta, and it's certainly one of the stronger promotions they could have made.

Chris Scelfo, who had held the position for multiple years, will now be looking for a gig with another team. Scelfo is a respected tight ends coach who just didn't have much luck with Toilolo this past year, but should land on his feet elsewhere.

Welcome to your new position, Harman.
