Ryan excited that Koetter staying with Falcons

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan says he's excited that Dirk Koetter will remain the Falcons' offensive coordinator.

Ryan has worked just one season with Koetter, who has signed a contract extension to stay with the team through 2014, and the results have been impressive for the NFC's No. 1 playoff seed.

Roddy White and Julio Jones each have over 1,000 yards receiving. Tight end Tony Gonzalez leads the team in catches, and Ryan is having his best season as a 5-year professional.

Though the production of running back Michael Turner has dropped off substantially, Ryan says that the coach's game plans and play-calling are a big reason Atlanta (13-3) is enjoying a bye week before it hosts a divisional round game Jan. 13.
