Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin’s second interview with the Falcons regarding their head coaching position is now expected to come a day earlier than planned.
According to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com, the Falcons are “likely” to meet with Austin on Wednesday.
The Falcons were scheduled to meet Wednesday with Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, but Bowles is reportedly taking the Jets’ head coaching job.
The 49-year-old Austin interviewed for Chicago’s head coaching vacancy on Tuesday. In his first season running Detroit’s defense in 2014, the Lions allowed the second-fewest yards in the NFL.
Oakland, San Francisco and Denver are also searching for head coaches.
