Falcons request interview with Lions DC Aaron Glenn

The Atlanta Falcons continue to work their way through the top head-coaching candidates, requesting multiple interviews on Thursday morning. Both Detroit Lions coordinators are on the Falcons’ list.

After an earlier report of the Falcons requesting an interview with Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson, the team has done the same with defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Johnson gets all the credit, but Glenn has played an equally important role in helping the Lions go from the laughing stock of the league to a contender.

Glenn, a former NFL defensive back who was drafted in the first round back in 1994, took a job in Detroit after spending five years in New Orleans as a defensive backs coach. He was recently voted as the NFL’s top defensive coordinator by the players in a poll held by the NFLPA.
