The Atlanta Falcons have been one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL this season. Dan Quinn's team is 5-9 heading into the final two weeks of the year and has lost five of its last six contests.

Atlanta is likely to move some moves in the offseason and, according to a new report, "significant changes" could be coming to the coaching staff.

NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero reports that Falcons' offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian could be out.

"There’s a strong possibility of significant changes to Dan Quinn‘s #Falcons staff, including replacing OC Steve Sarkisian. One name to keep in mind: ex-#Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell, who actually spent a few weeks in camp working with Atlanta‘s defense," he reports.

Sarkisian, 44, is in his second season as Atlanta's offensive coordinator. He previously worked at Alabama and was USC's head coach for two seasons.

Quinn, meanwhile, has been the Falcons' head coach since 2015.
