Falcons tight end coach Wade Harman was fired by the team, Harman confirmed Wednesday.

“Yes, that’s true,” Harman said.

Harman was the assistant offensive line coach in 2014. He was retained by coach Dan Quinn in 2015 and moved over to tight ends.

He wants to continue coaching.

“We’ll see what’s out there,” Harman said. “Hopefully, I’ll have some options to keep coaching. It will all work out.”

Harman did a good job with the development of tight end Austin Hooper, who was selected as a Pro Bowl alternate in 2018. Hooper had career highs in catches (71), yards (660) and touchdowns (four) last season.

Harman started his NFL coaching career with the Vikings in 1997. He coached with the Ravens from 1999 to 2013.

With the Ravens, Harman helped them win two Super Bowls and he worked with Shannon Sharpe, who’s a Pro Football Hall of Famer.
