Ryan, Falcons Excited OC is Staying in Atlanta

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -

Quarterback Matt Ryan is enjoying his best season in five years with the Atlanta

Falcons.

 

So it's no wonder Ryan was

delighted to hear that offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter won't be leaving to

take a head coaching job with another NFL team.

 

Ryan has worked just one season

with Koetter, who has signed a contract extension to stay with the team through

2014, and the results have been impressive for the NFC's No. 1 playoff seed.

 

Roddy White and Julio Jones each

have over 1,000 yards receiving. Tight end Tony Gonzalez leads the team in

catches, and Ryan is having his best season as a professional.

 

The only drawback has been the

substantial decline in production from running back Michael Turner.

 

The Falcons (13-3) have a bye week before they host

a divisional round game Jan. 13.
