Titans targeting Falcons quarterbacks coach Charles London for offensive coordinator vacancy

The sign a head coach is building a good staff is other teams poaching assistants. The Falcons could potentially have two massive voids to fill on Arthur Smith’s staff this offseason. Dean Pees retiring creates a void at defensive coordinator, and quarterbacks coach Charles London could be on the move. According to Jonathan Jones, London is interviewing for the Titans’ offensive coordinator vacancy.

Todd Downing, who replaced Arthur Smith in Tennessee, was fired following the Titans’ season finale loss.

London has overseen the quarterback room in Atlanta for the past two years, which has featured Matt Ryan, Josh Rosen, A.J. McCarron, Marcus Mariota, Desmond Ridder, and Feleipe Franks. London actually interviewed for the Dolphins’ offensive coordinator last offseason but was passed over in favor of Frank Smith.

Mike Vrabel and London spent time together in Tennessee and Houston. London will be competing with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy for the position, and I don’t know how anyone would choose the Falcons position coach over either of those individuals.

If he leaves Atlanta, the Falcons will have a massive hole to fill this offseason. Developing Desmond Ridder should be the team’s No. 1 priority entering the 2023 season, and his position coach plays a considerable role in that development.
