Durde’s introduction to the Falcons came in 2016, when Quinn granted him a spot with the Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship, thanks to a reference from former defensive pass-game coordinator Jerome Henderson. Henderson knew Durde from his stint with the Cowboys.
Durde joined the Falcons in 2018 as a defensive quality-control coach. He was the team’s outside linebackers coach last season and helped with the development of Foye Oluokun.
