Falcons Report: Two-time Super Bowl champion Dean Pees to join Atlanta’s staff

In a bit of surprising news, it looks like Arthur Smith potentially already has his defensive coordinator — a former Titans connection.

Dean Pees has coached a lot of very talented defenses in New England and Baltimore. While he had some warts in Tennessee, he has an impressive coaching pedigree and knows the game well. Dean’s son, Matt, is a likely candidate to join Atlanta in some capacity as well. One thing I really like about Pees as a defensive coordinator is the way he mixes up schemes. I’ve been begging Atlanta to move to a 3-4 defense, and that’s the base Pees runs out of. He isn’t married to it, but I think a 3-4 fits the strengths of Atlanta the best — the linebackers.

Nothing is official yet, but it looks like Dean Pees will come out of retirement to coach in some capacity with this Falcons defense that badly needs help.
