Atlanta Falcons Coaching Staff Coming Together as Raheem Morris Keeps 4  Assistants - Sports Illustrated Atlanta Falcons News, Analysis and More



Under new head coach Raheem Morris, the coaching staff of the Atlanta Falcons is beginning to take form.

After Arthur Smith was fired, the Falcons hired Morris, who was formerly the defensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams, on January 25. This put an end to a search that lasted over three weeks.

Morris interviewed applicants right away and expedited the process by bringing back four former employees.

In addition to keeping offensive line coach Dwayne Ledford, running backs coach Michael Pitre, and receivers coach T.J. Yates, Atlanta has decided to maintain special teams coordinator Marquice Williams. This information was reported by WSB Atlanta.

The Falcons have not formally announced these changes or said whether or not they want to remain in their current positions.

Morris also hired Zac Robinson, a highly sought-after candidate from clubs with an opening for an offensive coordinator, to train the Rams quarterbacks and oversee the pass game.

Other teams showed interest in Williams and Ledford in a similar manner.

The New York Giants and the New England Patriots both requested interviews from Williams; he was unable to meet with the Giants but was able to speak with the Patriots, whose job offer he ultimately turned down in order to remain in Atlanta.

The Giants were also interested in Ledford, but he was not allowed to interview.

Running backs Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier, who both established franchise rookie records in their respective first acts, owe a great deal to Pitre’s growth.

Yates, a seven-year NFL quarterback, has helped first-round choice Drake London grow by offering creative practice routines and a new viewpoint on the receiving position.

The 37-year-old Robinson has worked in Los Angeles for the last five seasons. He has been the pass game coordinator and assistant quarterbacks coach the last two years, the assistant receivers coach in 2020, and the assistant quarterbacks coach in 2019 and 2021.

The position of defense coach with the Falcons is still vacant. Both defensive assistant Dave Huxtable and defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen left to take the same position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Morris has not yet retained or signed any other defensive staff members.

Morris may try to get his personnel confirmed by the time he addresses the media on Monday, February 5th.
