A quick coaching search update, if you are wondering why there have not been any updates in what seems like months. The search is being delayed a few days after the passing of Mr. Blank's mother.
#Falcons coaching interviews for Teryl Austin and Todd Bowles were pushed back to Friday and Saturday because of the passing of Molly Blank.— D. Orlando Ledbetter (@DOrlandoAJC) January 8, 2015
The Falcoholic staff sends their thoughts and prayers to Arthur Blank at this time. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution had some nice things to say about Blank's mother, who lived until 99.
Blank’s father passed away when he was just 15. In speeches, he talks about his mother instilling the entrepreneurial spirit in him. She had no business experience, but refused to sell the pharmaceutical company that her husband left behind. She turned the business into a million-dollar business, showing a drive that she passed on to Blank.
The team looks to jump back into interviewing tomorrow and should get to their second round of coaching interviews by next week.
