The Atlanta Falcons have promoted Mark Collins to outside linebackers coach and hired Andrew Thacker as a defensive assistant.
“We are pleased to promote Mark to outside linebacker coach,” Falcons head coach Mike Smith said. “He has proved to be a valuable part of our coaching staff the last four seasons and we are confident that he will continue to help develop our outside linebackers. Andrew is a young coach who has experience in major college football and we feel he will be an asset to our staff.”
Collins helped coach the defensive line for the past four seasons.
Thacker joins the Falcons after one season as the safeties coach at Southern Mississippi.
