With the 2020 season officially in the books, the Falcons search for a new head coach and general manager is heating up. It was reported earlier today that they will interview 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh and Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy tomorrow to be their next head coach. They are also attempting to interview the Colts Director of College Scouting Morocco Brown for their general manager position.

Brown was the Director of Pro Scouting for Washington from 2008-2013 before being hired by the Browns, where he served as the Vice President of Player Personnel for two years. Most recently, he’s helped the Colts get back to the playoffs, thanks to his impeccable eye for talent which has resulted in several home run draft selections.
To this point, the Falcons have interviewed two general manager candidates — Anthony Robinson and Rick Smith. A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that the former Texans GM Smith was the favorite to land the job, but we will see if Brown can wow Arthur Blank and Rich McKay enough to earn his first crack as a general manager.
