A year after joining forces with Tom Brady in Tampa, Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles could be dealing with Brady twice per year. Again.

Per a league source, the Falcons will interview Bowles next week for their vacant head-coaching position.

Bowles served as head coach of the Jets from 2015 through 2018, generating a record of 24-40. He went 10-6 but missed the playoffs in his first year on the job.

Bowles rejoined Bruce Arians in Tampa for the past two seasons. The team’s defense has become an underrated strength of the team, given the amount of focus on the efforts to take the offense to the next level with the addition of players like Brady, tight end Rob Gronkowski, and receiver Antonio Brown.

  1. I wish Todd Bowles the best. I really don’t know if he has what it takes to be a good NFL head coach. But given his first job was with the Jets–he got stuck with a terrible GM that did not build a very good roster. I mean, the GM took Hackenberg with a 2nd round pick and the staff figured out FAST he was not gonna be an NFL QB–but the GM refused to admit that mistake.

    He should get another shot.

  2. He did cut his teeth with the jets which is a death sentence for any coach. I want to see what he can really do.

  3. The defense isn’t a strength, hidden or otherwise. They can’t generate any pressure without sending numbers. Their secondary is atrocious. About the only thing I will give them credit for is that they are opportunistic about creating turnovers.

  4. Todd got a raw deal with the Jets, he deserves a legitimate chance with at least a semi functioning organization. Although if I were him, I would not accept a job with the falcons.

  5. 283 reasons to hire this dude. Go for it Failcons, Saints fan here would love this move.

  6. A “Rooney” candidate, that’s all.

    Nobody is going to seriously hire Todd Bowles as a head coach

  7. As a Jets fan who watched him for five years, the answer should be no. He’s not a HC.

  8. Will they be interviewing Bowles or that statue we saw on the sideline during his Jets years?
