    He's got some pro style background and can give Kliff some good help at blending college ideas into the NFL. Hopefully Sark has cleaned up the off-field stuff in his life. Don't need that impacting the job he does in Arizona.

    Hopefully he’s off the bottle and SK doesn’t ask him to join for some drinks after the game.

    Well, I wouldn’t be ecstatic with Sarkisian being signed, but on the other hand, I guess we need to find the positives. First, the Falcons’ offense has not been as bad as some posters indicate. Matt Ryan has played well both year under Sarkisian, and the receiving corps has been good as well. Second, I feel like a lot of the criticism stems from Sarkisian’s time as offensive coordinator the last two years, but he won’t call plays with the Cardinals. Third, he has been at some of the biggest college-programs, and each place he did well.

    I don’t know. I would certainly have chosen someone else, but I am not that negative about this hiring. I don’t think Sarkisian is that bad of a coach.

    Don’t really know how to take this. The candidates named so far are just OK to me. That being said KK will be calling the shots at the end of the day, and the OC will help strategize and formulate a game plan that will morph college and NFL concepts. More of a sounding board to me

    This hire will ease MB fear of having his OC poached after a year or two.

    Lets not forget...whatever coach comes in as oc has to be able to design an nfl offense using air raid philosophies while also being willing to surrender play calling duties.
    So the ego has to let the guy design an offense and playbook while allowing k2 to get all the credit for gameday success on the field.
    Not just any coach is going to be willing to step into that position.

    I would prefer mcadoo....but would he be willing to be so behind the scenes?

    Haven’t seen too many positive thoughts by you my friend. Are you Wilks son in law or something?

    Think K2 needs another innovative mind to exchange ideas with, preferably one that has NFL experience. Hopefully Sarkisian can fill that role.

    Key to remember is that KK will be calling the plays. That in itself limits the number of coaches that will come here to be an OC.

    My Twitter feed indicates that McAdoo is still in the mix.

    what type of coach who has called plays in the past would accept a job where he comes to AZ under a rookie head coach with the knowledge that he won't be calling plays?

    Lets be honest a top OC is not taking this job as they would know KK will be the playcaller.

    Totally agree, that is what I said. It would have to be a coach that needs to resurrect his career. McAdoo and Sark are both in that category.
