Coaching jobs around the NFL are starting to fill up, and it sounds like the Atlanta Falcons might be next on the list to join the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets in hiring a head coach.
ESPN reports that the Falcons have made an official offer to Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith to be the team’s new coach.
Smith has served as OC for the Titans the last two seasons.
The offense for the Titans thrived with Smith as the OC, as they averaged 30.7 points per game with Smith at the helm.
Of course the Falcons don’t have a running back like the Titans’ Derrick Henry, which is just one of the many challenges that Smith will have to face as head coach of the Falcons.
Last season, the Titans put up 396.4 total yards per game, third in the NFL. They won the AFC South before losing at home in Super Wild Card Weekend to the Baltimore Ravens.
Smith will take over for Dan Quinn, who was fired on October 11th along with GM Thomas Dimitroff after the Falcons limped to an 0-5 start.
