ATLANTA – Former Fresno State coach Pat Hill is the Atlanta Falcons’ new offensive line coach.
Hill replaces Paul Boudreau, who was fired after the season.
Hill was 112-80 with 11 bowl appearances in 15 seasons at Fresno State. He was the offensive line and tight ends coach for the Cleveland Browns from 1992-95 and Baltimore Ravens in 1996.
Coach Mike Smith’s Atlanta staff has had a dramatic makeover after a disappointing playoff loss to the New York Giants. Defensive backs assistant Alvin Reynolds also was fired and defensive co-ordinator Brian VanGorder left to head Auburn’s defence.
Also, offensive co-ordinator Mike Mularkey was named Jacksonville’s head coach and quarterback coach Bob Bratkowski is the Jaguars’ offensive co-ordinator.
Dirk Koetter has taken over the offence, while Mike Nolan was hired to run the defence.
