Dirk Koetter signs extension with Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons' offensive coordinator had reportedly received interest from the Chiefs, Eagles and Browns.

Atlanta Falcons' offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter signed a two-year contract to stay with the team after he received interest from the Chiefs, Eagles and Browns for their head coaching vacancies, according to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports.

Koetter, 53, is in his first season with the Falcons after five seasons as the offensive coordinator of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Falcons finished with a 13-3 record and earned the No. 1 seed in the NFC, led by an offense that ranked in the top 10 in points scored and yards accumulated. Matt Ryan finished with career-best numbers in completion percentage, passing yardage, touchdowns and passer rating.

According to Marvez, Koetter had already met with the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday about their head coaching vacancy and was scheduled to meet with both the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns. He also interviewed with the Denver Broncos in January 2012.

Prior to joining the Jaguars, Koetter served as the head coach for the Arizona State Sun Devils and Boise State Broncos.
