The Falcons announced Saturday that Bratkowski had agreed to terms with the team.

Bratkowski, fired by the Bengals last month after serving as their coordinator since 2001, replaces former Falcons quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave, who was hired as offensive coordinator by the Minnesota Vikings in January.

"Obviously it's a quality organization from the top down. It's a winning organization," Bratkowski told *The Atlanta Journal-Constitution* on Saturday.

Bratkowski, who worked with quarterback Carson Palmer in Cincinnati, now will guide Matt Ryan, who went to the Pro Bowl for the first time after throwing for 3,705 yards and 28 touchdowns with nine interceptions in 16 starts for the 13-3 Falcons this past season.

"Obviously to coach a quarterback like Matt Ryan and be on a quality staff in the NFL is very attractive," Bratkowski told the newspaper.
