Steve Sarkisian is leaving Alabama to become the Falcons’ offensive coordinator, the NFC champions announced Tuesday in a surprise move.
The Falcons have agreed with Steve Sarkisian to become Atlanta’s offensive coordinator.
The veteran coach was just promoted to the same position at the college level, replacing Lane Kiffin. Sarkisian coached the national championship game, but his team ended up losing to Clemson.
Many expected the Falcons to promote from within the organization to replace Kyle Shanahan. Instead, they bring along Sarkisian, who had an ugly departure as the head coach at USC after some alcohol-related incidents.

Sarkisian primarily has coached at the college level, with his only professional experience being as quarterbacks coach on Norv Turner’s staff with the Raiders in 2004.
Brady in 2015, when he was 38, told reporters that he wanted to play for a long time, maybe 10 more (years). You do the math. No human should be able to play football at that age; not in this league and at that position.

And Brady, an unapologetic competitor who has said he values mental experience in the NFL as it relates to his physical abilities, must be taken seriously when he says he wants to keep this going. He saw what a career of knowledge did for Peyton Manning as his rival led the Broncos to a Super Bowl 50 victory; the same type of knowledge Brady used to pull off the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history a year later.
But Brady also witnessed the physical deterioration Manning experienced through his last couple of seasons.
