FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Quarterback Matt Ryan is enjoying his best season in five years with the Atlanta Falcons.
So it's no wonder Ryan was delighted to hear that offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter won't be leaving to take a head coaching job with another NFL team.
Ryan has worked just one season with Koetter, who has signed a contract extension to stay with the team through 2014, and the results have been impressive for the NFC's No. 1 playoff seed.
Roddy White and Julio Jones each have over 1,000 yards receiving. Tight end Tony Gonzalez leads the team in catches, and Ryan is having his best season as a professional.
The only drawback has been the substantial decline in production from running back Michael Turner.
The Falcons (13-3) have a bye week before they host a divisional round game Jan. 13.
