Falcons interested in several offensive coordinator candidates

The Atlanta Falcons are preparing information on several possible replacements for Mike Mularkey, who left his position as offensive coordinator to become the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday.

Lombardi: Fixing the Falcons

Another postseason, another egg laid by Atlanta. Michael Lombardi says the Falcons fell into the dome trap and must retool the roster. **More ...**

Included on that list are: former Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, former Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick, Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements and former New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

Koetter has prior experience working with Falcons head coach Mike Smith. Billick, a former coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings, has not filled that role in over a decade but is very close with Smith (they are related through marriage).

The Falcons expect to begin interviewing candidates within the next few days.

Former Jacksonville interim head coach Mel Tucker is among those being considered for the defensive coordinator position, sources said.
