The Atlanta Falcons announced Friday Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith has agreed to terms to become the Falcons’ head coach.

On Thursday morning reports surfaced that Urban Meyer would become the Jaguars Head Coach. Late Thursday night another domino fell with Robert Saleh and the Jets.

Reports surfaced early Friday morning that an offer had been made. But the team didn't make an announcement until late in the afternoon.

Arthur Smith's name has been a hot one this hiring cycle after his work the last two seasons as offensive coordinator of the Titans.

Smith has led the development of the NFL's best rushing attacks with stud RB Derrick Henry leading the charge, but has also reenergized the career of QB Ryan Tannehill.

Wikipedia updated Smith's coaching history well before anything was official.
