ATLANTA (AP) — Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn’s second interview with the Falcons appears to have strengthened his chances of becoming Atlanta’s next coach.

Quinn’s agent, Rick Smith, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Monday’s interview “went very well” and there’s “definitely mutual interest.”

The Falcons can’t offer the job to Quinn until after the Seahawks play New England in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1. Atlanta fired coach Mike Smith after a 6-10 season.

Quinn is the second candidate to have a follow-up interview with the Falcons. Detroit defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is the other.
