Falcons hire Mike Zimmer

New, comments

It's a done deal according to ESPN:

Mike Zimmer, the Dallas Cowboys' defensive coordinator for the past six seasons, has agreed to become the Falcons defensive coordinator under new coach Bobby Petrino, ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting.

I can't say I'm sad to see this development, Zimmer needs to return to a 4-3 defense and Dallas needs a dynamic, experienced 3-4 coordinator.
