Falcons hire 7 assistants, including Flood, Weis Jr.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have finalized their revamped coaching staff, less than two weeks after their disheartening loss in the Super Bowl to New England.

The Falcons announced Friday seven new hires, including former Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood as assistant offensive line coach and offensive assistant Charlie Weis Jr., the son of the long-time coach. Also added to the staff under head coach Dan Quinn: Dave Brock (offensive assistant), Bush Hamdan (quarterbacks coach), Charlie Jackson (defensive assistant), Justin Outten (offensive assistant) and Jess Simpson (defensive assistant).

Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian and defensive line coach Bryant Young were brought on earlier, so roughly half of Quinn's staff will be new in the 2017 season. Several of the returning assistants also have new roles or titles.
