Falcons Twitter reacts to head coach Arthur Smith getting fired

Falcons fans have been calling for head coach Arthur Smith‘s job over the last few weeks and team owner Arthur Blank finally obliged on Sunday evening. Smith was fired following his third consecutive 7-10 season, which was capped off by an ugly 48-17 loss to the Saints in Sunday’s finale.

Blank released a statement praising Smith for the positive things he did in Atlanta but also said he felt the product on the field had not lived up to expectations.

Fans on Twitter were happy to see the Falcons go in a different direction. Although, not everyone loved Rich McKay leading the coaching search.
