The Atlanta Falcons have already started interviewing candidates for the team’s head-coaching vacancy, including interim coach Raheem Morris. According to a report from FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, the Falcons are expected to interview Robert Saleh, the current San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator, for the position on Monday.

Saleh has been one of the NFL’s hottest names this season, and rightfully so. The 49ers’ defense has been one of the best in the league and played a large role in getting the team to Super Bowl LIV, where they ultimately fell to Kansas City.

According to NFL Network’s Peter Schrager, Saleh is also slated to interview with the Lions later in the week.
