Ben Kotwica, a former assistant with the Redskins, was hired as the Falcons special teams coordinator on Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

“Ben will provide an experienced but new voice for our special teams,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. “He brings an attacking attitude to our units.”

Kotwica, 44, will replace Keith Armstrong, who was the Falcons special teams coordinator from 2008-18. Armstrong agreed to terms with Tampa Bay on the same day. He will join the staff of Bruce Arians.

Armstrong played for Arians at Temple. 

Kotwica was with the Jets from 2007-13, as the coordinator only in 2013.

Quinn was not pleased with the return game, a year after the team did not re-signed returner Andre Roberts.
