After reports surfaced this week that the Atlanta Falcons would be interviewing the Bucs’ defensive coordinator Todd Bowles as a part of their search for a new head coach this offseason, Bowles confirmed on Wednesday during his weekly press conference that he will be interviewing for the Falcons’ job, but insisted that he’s focused on Tampa Bay’s upcoming playoff game against Washington.
“Yeah, that’s true,” Bowles said about his reported upcoming interview with the Falcons. “Right now my focus is on the playoff game. That’ll come in time and I’ll deal with that then.”
Atlanta has already completed an interview with 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and interim coach Raheem Morris. According to a number of reports, the Falcons have requested permission to interview Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady and Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith as well.
