The Falcons are adding former Bears general manager Phil Emery to their personnel department, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported Tuesday.
Emery, 57, was the general manager of the Bears from 2012-14. He was previously with the Falcons as director of college scouting from 2004-08. He left the Falcons after the 2009 draft, the second under general manager Thomas Dimitroff.
Dimitroff got a public vote of confidence from Falcons owner Arthur Blank earlier this month, but the team announced it would make changes to the personnel department. The Falcons parted ways with former director of player personnel Lionel Vital on Jan. 17.
