Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is getting a lot of media attention this week. He’s run an historical offense this season, likely earning a head coach gig with the San Francisco 49ers. It’s basically a foregone conclusion at this point and many are wondering who he will try to take with him.
Don’t expect the Falcons to lose any assistant of significance. A source said the team will block any attempt by Shanahan to take one of Dan Quinn’s high-profile assistants, such as assistant head coach/wide receivers coach Raheem Morris, running backs coach Bobby Turner and offensive line coach Chris Morgan.
See that? It’s a line, over there in that sand. It’s been drawn.
