Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was named the offensive coordinator of the Alliance of American Football's new Atlanta team on Wednesday.

Vick called the position "a dream come true" at an introductory news conference that was broadcast on Facebook from Georgia State Stadium in Atlanta.

"This is an amazing opportunity," said Vick, who worked as a Fox Sports NFL analyst last season. "I've always had a passion for teaching, coaching. I've been coached by some of the best. ... I'm looking forward to paying it forward to a group of guys that get a second opportunity at their careers."

Vick will be working with Brad Childress, who brings 40 years of experience after stints in the NCAA and with the Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs " where he coached with Vick while Vick was a coaching intern in 2017.
