FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Atlanta Falcons made another change on their coaching staff, firing defensive backs assistant Alvin Reynolds on Monday.
The announcement continues the shakeup that began after the Falcons were blown out by the New York Giants in the opening round of the playoffs.
Reynolds had been with the team since head coach Mike Smith was hired in 2008.
The Falcons lost Smith’s top two assistants when offensive co-ordinator Mike Mularkey took the head coaching job at Jacksonville and defensive co-ordinator Brian VanGorder moved to the same post at Auburn. Dirk Koetter has taken over the offence while Mike Nolan was hired to run the defence.
In addition to Reynolds, offensive line coach Paul Boudreau also was let go and quarterback coach Bob Bratkowski became Mularkey’s offensive co-ordinator at Jacksonville.
