Falcons To Have Second Interview With Seahawks' QuinnSeattle's NFC championship game win isn't stopping the Atlanta Falcons from talking with Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. Quinn's agent, Rick Smith, confirmed to The Associated Press on Sunday night the Falcons will meet with Quinn on Monday.

The Falcons can't offer the job to Quinn until after the Feb. 1 Super Bowl. Quinn will become the second candidate to hold a second interview with the Falcons, who are looking to replace Mike Smith. The Falcons had their second meeting with Detroit defensive coordinator Teryl Austin last week. ATLANTA (AP) – January 19, 2015
