Just over a month after officially being named the offensive coordinator of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Steve Sarkisian is set to be named the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons.

Sarkisian will be replacing Kyle Shanahan, who left the Falcons to take the San Francisco 49ers head coaching job.
This is certainly unexpected, but, then again, Sark’s promotion to offensive coordinator just one week before Alabama’s title game against Clemson was also incredibly unexpected.
Sarkisian leaves Alabama with an 0-1 record as offensive coordinator.
