Falcons offensive line coach Paul Boudreau was relieved of his duties on Tuesday
Boudreau joined the Atlanta Falcons coaching staff as offensive line coach in 2008 and spent four seasons with the team.
Success for Boudreau had been mixed in the first few seasons of his tenure the Falcons power running game excelled. He got the best out of undrafted free agents Harvey Dahl and Tyson Clabo and turned them into NFL starters.
The last few years the productivity of the offensive line progressively got worse. This year the group was unable to get consistently protect Matt Ryan and punish the opposition in the run game. The failure on 4th downs this year was largely due to the lack of interior push from the oline.
His dismal does not come as a great shock especially with Dirk Koetter coming in as the new OC. We will keep you posted on Blogging Dirty as an when news of a replacement comes in.
