Bill O’Brien was the first head coach to be fired this season and Dan Quinn will seemingly be joining him in the coming days. According to The Athletic’s Jeff Schultz, the Atlanta Falcons are prepared to fire Dan Quinn after the team’s 0-5 start on Sunday.

The Houston Texans removed O’Brien as their head coach and general manager after they began the season at 0-4. Romeo Crennel would assume the interim role for the Texans and led Houston to their first win of the season on Sunday versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As for Quinn and the Falcons, they possess a ton of talent on the roster, but they can’t seem to win games. Atlanta has held multiple double-digit leads in the second half of games, only for them to lose the game in heartbreaking fashion.

Following Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, the Falcons now possess an 0-5 record for the first time since 1997. Also, since the beginning of the 2018 season, Atlanta boasts a dismal 14-23 record under Quinn.

Even though the Falcons stuck with Quinn until Week 5, Schultz reports the team has been poised to fire him already. The loss to a shorthanded Panthers team was the final straw, likely ending his tenure with the team after five-plus seasons.

By moving on from Quinn right now, the Falcons can get a head start and begin their search for a new head coach moving forward. Once Quinn is fired, rumors of Eric Bieniemy becoming the head coach in Atlanta could become a topic of discussion among fans and the media alike.
