The Atlanta Falcons conducted virtual interviews with Ejiro Evero and Anthony Weaver on Sunday as they continue to search for a new head coach.
Evero, 43, spent this past season as the Carolina Panthers’ defensive coordinator after holding the same role with the Denver Broncos during the 2022 campaign.
At the NFL level, Evero has also had stints with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2007-09), San Francisco 49ers (2011-15), Green Bay Packers (2016) and Los Angeles Rams (2017-21) working mostly on the defensive side of the ball.
Weaver, 43, has been with the Baltimore Ravens as their associate head coach and defensive line coach since the 2022 season. He went to Baltimore in 2021, when he was the defensive line coach and run game coordinator.
Before his time with the Ravens, Weaver spent five seasons with the Houston Texans (2016-20) as their defensive line coach, adding the title of defensive coordinator for the 2020 campaign. He was the Cleveland Browns’ D-line coach from 2014-15.
Weaver has also made pit stops with the New York Jets (2012) and Buffalo Bills (2013). He worked at Florida and North Texas before moving up to the NFL.
Atlanta has now interviewed five potential suitors to take over for Arthur Smith, who was fired late last Sunday. Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan and 49ers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks all virtually met with the Falcons before Evero and Weaver.
Smith, 41, went 21-30 in his three seasons as head coach. Atlanta never won a playoff game under his tenure.
