Falcons request two more interviews for coaching vacancy

The Atlanta Falcons have requested permission to interview eight different candidates for their head coach vacancy, according to multiple reports on Thursday.

The team will speak with both Detroit Lions coordinators, former Falcons interim head coach Raheem Morris, and a handful of other names. Add Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero and Houston Texans offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik to that list.

Both coaches have been requested for interviews by Atlanta.

Evero has been a hot name over the last two coaching cycles. Last year, the Broncos blocked the Falcons’ request to interview Evero for their defensive coordinator opening.

As for Slowik, he’s a name to watch after the year he had working with Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud. Houston was arguably the NFL’s most surprising team this season, winning the AFC South with a rookie head coach and quarterback.

Slowik could be a good fit if Atlanta drafts a quarterback, as many expect the team to in 2024.
