Falcons Hire Mike Nolan To Be The Defensive Coordinator

Some very exciting news dropping Tuesday afternoon, that the Falcons have hired former 49ers HC and Dolphins DC Mike Nolan to be their DC.

I am personally thrilled by this appointment as he was my first choice by some way, as he is one of the few guys in the league that can call the 3-4 effectively. Check out my article on the possibility of the Falcons switching to a 3-4.

In 2011 his Dolphins 3-4 defense ranked 6th in points allowed, with a group that is not overly talented.

There will be more to come on this hire, but for now everybody be delighted as this was a terrific hire!
