Chargers hired ex-Falcons DC Mike Nolan as LBs coach.
Nolan has been either coordinating defenses or serving as a head coach every year since 2002. His past two Falcons units were abysmal, but his personnel was a major issue. He's a nice addition to DC John Pagano's staff. Jan 29 - 2:18 PM

A source tells ESPN that the Cardinals want to interview Falcons DC Mike Nolan for their defensive coordinator vacancy.

The Falcons are fully expected to hire Seahawks DC Dan Quinn as their new head coach following the Feb. 1 Super Bowl. That could put Nolan on the market and the Cardinals are looking for someone to fill the big shoes of Todd Bowles. Dick LeBeau is expected to serve on the staff in some kind of "senior position."

When asked about the Falcons, former NFL coach Brian Billick said he "can't think of another team in the league that has less quantifiable talent on it defensively."

Billick is the brother-in-law of Falcons head coach Mike Smith and also worked with defensive coordinator Mike Nolan in Baltimore. He points out what's become obvious: This Falcons defense is what we all expected the Cowboys defense to be this season. They rank 31st in yards allowed per game, 29th in points allowed per game and have just three sacks through four outings. The Giants, Bears, Ravens and Lions are up next.
