The Falcons finally make a move! Here is the report from the Falcons website.

Dimitroff joined the Falcons in 2008 and has played a key role in a period of success unmatched in Falcons history. Since his arrival the Falcons have won 109 games, been to the playoffs six times and won the NFC Championship in 2016. His drafts have landed franchise cornerstones Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Jake Matthews, Grady Jarrett, Deion Jones and numerous others who have helped the Falcons become one of the winningest teams in the NFL over the last 10 seasons. Since 2008, the Falcons rank eighth in the NFL and fourth in the NFC in wins.

Quinn has led the Falcons since the start of the 2015 season, amassing an overall record of 43-42. In 2016 the Falcons finished 11-5 and went on to win the NFC Championship over the Green Bay Packers before falling to New England in Super Bowl LI. The Falcons followed that up with a return to the playoffs in 2017, making Atlanta the only NFC team to do so, and defeated the Los Angeles Rams on the road in the NFC Wild Card game before dropping a close game at Philadelphia in the divisional playoff. Quinn’s work off the field has also been recognized, having been named the NFL’s Salute to Service honoree following the 2016 season.
