Can we get a moment of silence for the Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith? It’s not a surprise that the franchise is moving in a new direction from their head coach Mike Smith.

Check out the details below.

Coach Mike Smith was fired by the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced Monday morning. The firing of Mike Smith was not a surprise, as multiple media outlets have reported on owner Arthur Blank’s frustration with the Falcons’ shortcomings over the past two seasons. Authur Blanks had the following to say about Mike Smith,

“Smitty’s contributions to our club, team and city over the last seven years are numerous,” Blank said in a release. “His accomplishments on the field made him the most successful coach in the 49-year history of the Falcons, and we are grateful for the foundation he has laid for us for the future.”

Coach Smith joined the Falcons with general manager Thomas Dimitroff in 2008. Quarterback Matt Ryan was the new management team’s first draft pick, and the three combined for instant success with five straight winning seasons. Can’t wait to see who the Falcons bring in to replace Mike Smith.
