Falcons to retain running backs coach Michael Pitre, per report

The Atlanta Falcons still have several spots to fill on Raheem Morris’ coaching staff, but at least a few familiar faces will be back in 2024. Special teams coordinator Marquice Williams is expected to return along with running backs coach Michael Pitre, according to multiple reports.

Pitre joined the Falcons in 2022 and has helped the team develop one of the most potent rushing attacks in the NFL over the last two seasons. Former fifth-round pick Tyler Allgeier rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2022 and rookie Bijan Robinson went over 1,400 all-purpose yards in 2023.

Along with Pitre and Williams, the Falcons are expected to hire Rams quarterbacks coach/pass-game coordinator Zac Robinson as their offensive coordinator. That leaves just one coordinator vacancy for head coach Raheem Morris to fill.

Former Falcons defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen took a job in Jacksonville during the hiring process so the team must find a replacement. One name that has been linked to Atlanta is Cowboys defensive line coach Aden Durde.
