Falcons Hire Former Fresno State Coach Pat Hill
Pat Hill was fired at the end of the 2011 season as head coach of the Fresno State football team, but it didn’t take him long to get back in the game. ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas reports that the Atlanta Falcons have hired Hill as their next offensive line coach.
Hill replaces Paul Boudreau, who had been on the Falcons’ staff throughout the tenure of head coach Mike Smith.
In 15 seasons at the helm in Fresno, Hill led the Bulldogs to an 112-80 record and 11 bowl game appearances. They won a share of the Western Athletic Conference title in 1999.
The Falcons went 10-6 last season, making the postseason for the third time in four years, but losing in the first round to the New York Giants.
