Atlanta Falcons hire Jimmy Lake as defensive coordinator

The Atlanta Falcons have now hired all three coordinators under new head coach Raheem Morris, the team announced on Monday evening. Two former Los Angeles Rams coaches will fill the offensive and defensive coordinator roles.

Jimmy Lake, who served as the assistant head coach of the Los Angeles Rams in 2023, will take over as the Falcons defensive coordinator. Lake, 47, previously served as the head coach at the University of Washington from 2020-2021 and previously worked with Morris in Tampa Bay as a defensive backs coach.

For offensive coordinator, the Falcons have hired Rams quarterbacks coach/pass-game coordinator Zac Robinson. Atlanta opted to keep special teams coordinator Marquice Williams in his same role. Williams has served the last three seasons as the special teams coach under Arthur Smith.
