The Atlanta Falcons have retained three coaches from Arthur Smith’s staff. T.J. Yates, who served as the wide receivers coach in 2023, will take over as the quarterbacks coach on Raheem Morris‘ staff, NFL Network’s James Palmer reported on Monday afternoon.
Former Falcons offensive coordinator Dave Ragone served as the QBs coach last season, but the team is expected to hire Rams pass-game coordinator Zac Robinson as the offensive coordinator.
Falcons WR coach T.J. Yates is staying in Atlanta per source. But the former QB will be sliding over to be the QB coach.
