Alex Marvez of the Sporting News is reporting that the Falcons have hired Greg Knapp as their new QBs coach.

The Falcons reportedly had interest in Darrell Bevell, Ken Dorsey and Jedd Fisch for the position but it appears as though Knapp won out in the end.

Knapp, 54, played seven years in the NFL as a quarterback for the Chiefs, Raiders and 49ers. He began his NFL coaching career in 1997 as the 49ers’ offensive quality control coach.

Knapp worked his way up to offensive coordinator in 2001 before departing and working for a number of teams including the Falcons, Raiders, and Seahawks. The Broncos hired him as their QBs coach in 2013 but the two parties eventually parted ways after four seasons.
