Falcons add Charlie Weis Jr. to round out coaching staff


Bush Hamdan was named the Falcons quarterbacks coach Friday, along with a few other assistants.

In addition to Hamdan, the team announced the hiring of Dave Brock as an offensive assistant, Kyle Flood as the assistant offensive line coach and Charlie Jackson as a defensive assistant.

The Falcons also announced Justin Outten as an offensive assistant, Jess Simpson as a defensive assistant, and Charlie Weis Jr. as an offensive assistant.

Two are former collegiate head coaches: Brock at Delaware (2013-16) and Flood at Rutgers (2012-15).

Weis Jr. recently came from Alabama, where he was an offensive analyst from 2015-16. He is the son of former NFL and college football coach Charlie Weis.

Hamdan was the wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator at the University of Washington.

He’ll replace Matt LeFleur, who became the Los Angeles Rams’ offensive coordinator, and work under new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian.

Hamdan, who’s never coached in the NFL, also had coaching stops at Davidson, Arkansas State and Florida, where he was the wide receivers coach in 2012, when Falcons coach Dan Quinn was the defensive coordinator.
