Falcons Name Joe Danna Secondary Coach, According To Report

The Atlanta Falcons have reportedly filled their vacant secondary coaching position with former Miami defensive backs coach Joe Danna. His name may sound familiar because he was a defensive assistant in Atlanta for two seasons from 2008-2009.

Danna spent last season defensive backs coach for the Miami Dolphins under new Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. The name might be lacking the wow factor, but Danna brings experience in working with Nolan to the Falcons.

Danna also has ties to the state of Georgia having served as a graduate assistant at the University of Georgia and as the defensive backs coach at Georgia Southern for two seasons. He joined the Falcons coaching staff in 2008 and signed on with the Dolphins in February of 2010. Danna also has coaching stops at Central Michigan and James Madison on his resume.
