Well this isn’t exactly a great look for the Atlanta Falcons.
The team announced that they had hired Alabama coach Steve Sarkisian on Tuesday, and the move shocked pretty much everyone in the football world.
Everyone. Including Sarkisian’s now co-workers, as ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported that members of the Falcons staff learned of the move on social media.
It looks like this move developed quickly, so it’s not too surprising that not everyone might have been informed before the news became public. Of course, the staff knowing should be a priority in this situation, and it’s not exactly the best public look for your own coaches to be finding out about staff moves via the media and not the people in the organization.
