The Atlanta Falcons on Friday named Ryan Nielsen as the team’s new defensive coordinator.
Nielsen spent the past six seasons with the New Orleans Saints as a defensive line coach and held a co-defensive coordinator title for the 2022 season.
Nielsen succeeds Dean Pees, who announced his retirement shortly after the Falcons’ 2022 season concluded.
Around the NFL will have more on this story shortly.
