Former Fresno State coach Pat Hill has agreed to become the Atlanta Falcons' offensive line coach, the team announced in a release.
Hill compiled a 112-80 record in 15 seasons at Fresno State but was fired at the end of the 2011 season.
He has previously served as offensive line coach for the Cleveland Browns from 1992 to 1995 and for the Baltimore Ravens in 1996.
Hill replaces Paul Boudreau, who was fired at the end of the season.
Earlier in the month, the Falcons lost offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey when he agreed to become head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Falcons replaced him with former Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.
