Falcons to Interview Garrett, Sparano Today
The Atlanta Falcons are scheduled to interview two Cowboys assistants, offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and offensive line coach Tony Sparano, for their head coaching vacancy today in the Dallas area.
Teams in the head coaching market are using the opportunity they have under NFL rules to interview candidates on teams with first-round playoff byes this week. The Falcons interviewed Indianapolis Colts assistant head coach Jim Caldwell on Thursday.
The Baltimore Ravens are scheduled to interview Sparano on Saturday. The Ravens also have received permission to interview Garrett and presumably will talk to him the same day. The Ravens reportedly received permission to interview Caldwell as well.
Sparano has been identified as the Miami Dolphins' front-runner but it's not clear when he will interview with them.
Next week, the teams likely will turn their attention to other candidates. Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan is scheduled to interview with his own club Sunday and with the Falcons on Monday. The Dolphins have received permission to interview Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.
