Former Falcons center Todd McClure, who played from 2000-12, approved of the hiring of Dirk Koetter as the offensive coordinator and Mike Mularkey as the tight ends coach Tuesday.
McClure, who was nicknamed “Mud Duck” for his gritty style of play, was the starting center during Mularkey’s tenure (2008-11) and the beginning of Koetter’s tenure (2012-14) as offensive coordinator.
He took to Twitter to announce his approval.
“I am pumped about @AtlantaFalcons hire of Dirk and Mike,” he wrote. “Love what these guys bring to the table. 2 of my favorite guys. 2019 should be electric.”
McClure wanted to keep playing, but the Falcons went with Peter Konz in 2013, and that was a part of their slide to 4-12.
