ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have interviewed two directors of college scouting, Brad Holmes of the Los Angeles Rams and Morocco Brown of the Indianapolis Colts, for their general manager position.

The Falcons announced Tuesday they conducted virtual interviews with Holmes and Brown.

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.

Holmes has directed the Rams' scouts for eight years.

Brown served as vice president of player personnel for the Cleveland Browns from 2014-15 and has been with the Colts for five seasons. Brown also is the former director of player personnel for Washington (2008-13) and director of pro personnel for the Chicago Bears (2001-07).

The Falcons previously interviewed former Houston Texans GM Rick Smith and Atlanta’s director of college scouting, Anthony Robinson, for the GM position.

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

Team owner Arthur Blank has 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 for the permanent job on Friday.
