Steve Sarkisian says his new offensive coordinator job with the Atlanta Falcons was too good to pass up … explaining, “You get great opportunities, you just try to take advantage of them.”
Of course, Sark left his offensive coordinator job at the University of Alabama after just 1 game — the National Championship game — when the Falcons offered him the NFL gig.
“Crazy how the world works,” Sark tells TMZ Sports.
He’s clearly excited for the job — and says he’s ready to dive right in.
We also asked how he felt about his Falcons predecessor’s controversial playcalling in the Super Bowl — you know, when they took themselves out of field goal range in the 4th quarter. Sark is careful not to talk trash.
