Jason La Canfora confirms the news and adds that GM Thomas Dimitroff could also be out midseason. 

The Falcons are off to an 0-5 start, which includes another disappointing loss to the Panthers on Sunday. 

The team has been hit hard with injuries this year, but there hasn’t been a lot of positive strides made and there are persistent issues on both sides of the ball. 

Two interim head coach options for Atlanta include Dirk Koetter and Raheem Morris, who both have prior head-coaching experience. 

Quinn, 50, got his start in the NFL in 2001 with the 49ers as a defensive quality control coach before being promoted to defensive line coach. He spent time with the Dolphins, Jets and Seahawks in the same position before being promoted to defensive coordinator in Seattle in 2013. 

Quinn was hired by the Falcons as their head coach in 2015. He helped guide the team to a Super Bowl appearance in his second year in 2016.

Since taking the Falcons’ head coach job, Quinn has led to the team to a record of 43-42 (50.5 percent) over the course of six seasons, which includes two playoff appearances.

We’ll have more regarding the Falcons and Quinn as the news is available.
