I can't believe you guys complain about a guy who has not even has a chance to show us what he can do with our personnel... Sometimes I am glad I live in Denmark and don't have to listen to all this girly whining all the time...

Give the guy a chance...

People wanted a big name, but my guess is that they are just not there.

As for DC, I think we're gonna get either Spags or Nolan. BAM! There's your big name

From Wiki -

Koetter was the head coach at Highland High School for two seasons (1983–1984) before becoming a full-time college assistant coach. His college coaching career began in 1985 as the offensive coordinator at San Francisco State University. He then coached at UTEP (1986–1988), Missouri (1989–1993), Boston College (1994–1995), and Oregon (1996–1997).

Koetter was the head coach for three seasons at Boise State from 1998–2000, before moving to Arizona State in 2001. His record with the Broncos was 26–10 (.722), with two Big West Conference titles and two bowl victories. At Arizona State, Koetter compiled a 40–34 record, and four winning seasons in six years. Under Koetter, the Sun Devils became known for a vertical passing attack. He held a 1–11 record against top 10 teams, and was 2–19 against ranked teams. On November 26, 2006, The Arizona Republic reported that Koetter was being terminated as ASU football coach.[1] His final game was the 2006 Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve, a 41–24 loss.

In 2007, Koetter accepted the position of offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL. In his first season with the Jaguars, the offense improved from tenth in the league (338.9 yards per game) to seventh (357.4 yards per game). Koetter has been instrumental in the development of Jaguars offensive players Maurice Jones-Drew, Mike Sims-Walker, and Marcedes Lewis. Koetter was named, in addition to his duties as offensive coordinator, as the team's quarterbacks coach on November 30, 2011, with the firing of wide receivers coach Johnny Cox and the switch of quarterbacks coach Mike Sheppard to wide receivers coach.

I am so underwhelmed. Certainly the Falcons see or know something about this guy that we don't. Sigh.

I'll tell you what... this is terrible news. I guess Mike Smith is ready to go down with the ship to hire his Jacksonville buddies.

Pretty sure this will hasten that outcome.....Did Dimitroff fall off of his mountain bike recently?
