Koetter has served as the Jaguars'offensive coordinator since 2007. Clements has been in his position with the Packers since 2006.

In addition to Koetter and Clements, the Falconshave interest in former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick and former New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.
