In addition to Bowles, the Falcons have completed virtual head coach interviews with six other candidates:
- Atlanta Falcons’ interim head coach Raheem Morris
- Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy
- San Francisco 49ers’ defensive coordinator Robert Saleh
- Carolina Panthers’ offensive coordinator Joe Brady
- Green Bay Packers’ offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett
- Tennessee Titans’ offensive coordinator Arthur Smith.
Beginning on Jan. 4, clubs could begin conducting in-person interviews for head coach and general manager positions with candidates who are not current NFL team employees or whose club is not participating in the postseason.
Virtual interviews for head coach positions could begin with coaches whose clubs had a bye in the first week of the playoffs, and were allowed to continue through the conclusion of wild card games on Jan. 10.
