Falcons | Jim Mora critical of team

Mon, 13 Feb 2012 05:44:27 -0800

Former Atlanta Falcons head coach Jim Mora said he has left an imprint on the city of Atlanta and as a result, he has been able to recruit many top players from the state of Georgia. Mora currently serves as head coach of UCLA. Mora also took a shot at the Falcons for their lack of playoff success. "The bottom line is this: The last time the Falcons won a playoff game, I was the head coach," Mora said. "Kids remember that game, the 47-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams (in the 2004 divisional playoffs). A lot of kids around Atlanta, the state of Georgia and the Southeast follow the Falcons. They know that was the last time that the Falcons have won a playoff game ... For all the success that the Falcons have had since we left, they still haven't won a playoff game - and that resonates with people."

Titans | Looking for a defensive coordinator

Sat, 22 Jan 2011 10:05:18 -0800

Updating previous reports, Eric Mangini, former head coach of the Cleveland Browns, is a candidate for the Tennessee Titans' defensive coordinator position, reports Jim Wyatt, of The Tennessean. However, the two sides have not discussed a contract thus far. It appears the Titans will take their time to make a decision. Head coach Jeff Fisher, according to sources, is expected to talk to a number of candidates during the coming week. Jim Mora Jr., Clancy Pendergast (University of California), and Gregg Williams (currently with the New Orleans Saints) could be options, or the team could look to promote assistant head coach Dave McGinnis to defensive coordinator. There is also a situation that could see Fisher handling the defensive play calling himself.

And we're going to take an extremely hard look at that in the next two days, and I can't promise you that they're wont be changes. If there are changes to be made, we'll make them even at this late stage of the season."

Tue, 13 Feb 2007 07:14:35 -0800

Steve Wyche, of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports Atlanta Falcons new coaching staff will not provide special treatment to star QB Michael Vick due to the veteran quarterback being the club's most recognized player. "There will be no coddling of Michael Vick," offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said in an exclusive interview with the publication Monday, Feb. 12. "This is not a demerit system where we say, 'Okay we're going to deal with this guy this way and this guy that way.' We're going to coach them all hard and he knows that. We have an expectation of him and I think he'll be the first to tell you that I'm not afraid to say anything to him and I'm not afraid to say anything to anyone on this offense." As reported, Vick will be provided the freedom to audible at the line of scrimmage next season, which the quarterback was unable to do under former head coach Jim Mora.
