Brian Johnson’s NFL Head Coaching Opportunities
Brian Johnson interviewed for the head coach opening with the Atlanta Falcons.
After Atlanta failed to qualify for the postseason with a 7-10 record, the team fired former head coach Arthur Smith.
In November 2023, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said that he expected Johnson to be a hot candidate for head coach positions this offseason.
“I think the first names that are gonna come off a lot of people’s will be Ben Johnson (Lions offensive coordinator) and Brian Johnson,” Schefter said on The Pat McAfee Show. “I think those are gonna be the two guys who get a ton of interviews.
Johnson was promoted to offensive coordinator of the Eagles in February 2023 after former Philly OC Shane Steichen was hired as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.”
