He first went out and hired offensive genius Mike Mularkey who turned Atlanta’s Matt Ryan into one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks. Although Mularkey was not so successful as his last stint as a head coach (with Buffalo 2006-2008 where his record was 14-18.

Once the ball is snapped, results speak for themselves and we know in September how good a job he is doing preparing, strategies, (assembling) the staff. It will all come out. By that time, the buzz, the splash, is going to be history.”
Front office and coaching changes aside, the team will also have to deal with the sophomore season of Blaine Gilbert who passed for over 2200 yards last season with 12 touchdowns but was less than stellar.
