Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is bummed that Steve Sarkasian was fired as offensive coordinator following the season, but is excited to work once again with new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.
Koetter, who worked with Ryan for 3 years, re-joined the Falcons after he was fired as head coach of the Tamp Bay Buccaneers.
“It’s hard,” Ryan said, during an interview with “The Front Row” , per the Falcons team website. “I felt like I had a really good rapport with Sark, and he did a nice job for us. But, as a head coach, you feel like you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do, and I respect that with Dan. He felt like he needed to make moves in order for us to be better.
“I’m excited to work with Dirk Koetter again, it felt like my time spent with him early in my career was really productive. I’ve learned a lot since then, and I think we both can be better as we move forward. But, it’s one of the parts of the job that sucks, for sure. Letting people go and having new people come in and turnover, but it’s a part of this business and you have to deal with it.”

Jones, who has a year remaining on his rookie deal, is currently slated to earn $1.07 million in 2019 and appears to be a part of the Falcons’ plans moving forward.
Jones earned a Pro Bowl nod back in 2017, but missed most of the 2018 season due to a broken foot he endured in Week 1.
Still, Jones when out to record 53 tackles, 1 sack, and 2 interceptions, including a pick six, in 2018 for Atlanta.
