|Dan Quinn Has Agreed To Sign A 5 Year Deal To Coach The Atlanta Falcons|
| Kyle Shanahan|
Quinn, the former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator, agreed to a five-year deal to coach the Falcons on Monday.
Blank said building the roster will be a collaboration between Quinn, general manager Thomas Dimitroff and assistant general manager Scott Pioli.
League rules prevent the Falcons from offering the job to Quinn until his current team’s season ends.
It became clear in recent weeks that the Falcons were waiting for Quinn.
The first tangible evidence came when the Falcons hired offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan before hiring their head coach.
The expected announcement will fill the final 2015 NFL coaching vacancy.
Unless there’s still another change or two coming in the next week or so.
