Former Bucs coach Dirk Koetter apparently won't be out of work long. He's been offered the Atlanta Falcons' offensive coordinator job, according to an Atlanta-Journal Constitution report Monday.
"Koetter may have accepted the position," D. Orlando Ledbetter writes. "Late Monday, a high-ranking team official when asked to confirm would say only there is no agreement at this time."
Atlanta fired offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian last week.
Koetter held that position in Atlanta from 2012-14, working with quarterback Matt Ryan.
If he doesn't get the job in Atlanta, where he interviewed Saturday, Koetter could be a candidate for the same position in Minnesota. He is "in the running" for the Vikings' job, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.
The contract of Minnesota interim offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski expires on Tuesday. If Stefanski isn't brought back in the permanent role, Koetter is "in consideration" for the job, Ben Goessling writes.
Stefanski, formerly the quarterbacks coach, took over play-calling duties as the Vikings' interim coordinator for the final three weeks of the season after John DeFilippo was fired.
But the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported that "it seems clear" that Stefanski isn't returning. The publication described the departure as "Stefanski's choice, not the team's," in a story over the weekend.
Koetter was fired by the Bucs on the final day of the regular season after a loss to the Falcons capped a second straight 5-11 season. He was the offensive coordinator in Jacksonville from 2007-11 and in Atlanta from 2012-14 before Tampa Bay hired him for that position in 2015. He succeed fired Lovie Smith as coach after the 2015 season and went 9-7 in his first season.
