Kyle Shanahan is January’s belle of the ball.
The creative offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons will stage no less than four interviews with coach-needy teams over the next week, sources informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
On Friday and Saturday, Shanahan will meet with the Rams, Jaguars, Broncos and 49ers before the Falcons — armed with the No. 2 seed in the NFC — begin full preparations for the divisional round of the playoffs.
Shanahan has guided the Falcons to a sensational campaign on the offensive side of the ball. Atlanta rolls into the playoffs ranked first in points per game and second in yards per tilt, while quarterback Matt Ryan looms as a legitimate MVP candidate.
Just 37, Shanahan would become one of the NFL’s youngest head coaches if he nabs a job, but forget about his age: This is one of the league’s most exciting young talents.
