ATLANTA (AP) — The Falcons have interviewed Brad Holmes, the Los Angeles Rams' director of college scouting, for Atlanta's general manager position.

The Falcons announced Tuesday they conducted a virtual interview with Holmes. Atlanta is looking to replace Thomas Dimitroff, who along with coach Dan Quinn was fired following a 0-5 start this season. Dimitroff had been the Falcons' general manager since 2008.

The 41-year-old Holmes has directed the Rams' scouts for eight years.

The Falcons previously conducted virtual interviews with former Houston Texans GM Rick Smith and Atlanta’s director of college scouting, Anthony Robinson, in their search to replace Dimitroff.

One day after completing a 4-12 season with their fifth consecutive loss under interim coach Raheem Morris, the Falcons conducted virtual interviews Monday with two coaching candidates — Kansas City offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and San Francisco defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.

Team owner Arthur Blank said he will not place limitations on what moves a new general manager and coach can make. He said that includes decisions on quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones.

Morris, the former defensive coordinator who went 4-7 as interim coach, interviewed on Friday.
