Congrats to Ulbrich on the new gig, but LOL at the photo Rotoworld dug up to use for him. He's a pair of glasses away from looking just like Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems. 😂 

Jets hired Falcons LBs coach Jeff Ulbrich as defensive coordinator. 

Surprisingly, Ulbrich, and not new head coach Robert Saleh, will call plays on defense in 2021. An NFL player as recently as 2009, Ulbrich had never coordinator a defense until being named the Falcons' interim 2020 man following the firing of Dan Quinn. It is unclear if Ulbrich or interim coach Raheem Morris called plays. Despite supposedly handing over the reins, Saleh figures to remain intimately involved in game-planning and in-game strategy, giving Ulbrich some leeway as he learns the ropes of leading a defense. He isn't going to have much talent to work with in 2021.

Good guy and will become a good DC but this team needed an enema. I wish him well, he deserves the opportunity.

With 3 coaches from one of the worst defences in the league becoming DCs, I don’t know if that speaks to the Falcons lack of talent or the tendency to cronyism when hiring assistants and coordinators.
