Garrett granted second interview

Len Pasquarelli of ESPN reports that the Falcons have scheduled a second interview with Jason Garrett for tomorrow. Garrett interviewed with the Baltimore Ravens tonight, and may accept a job offer before travelling to Atlanta tomorrow. The Falcons interviewed Garrett for the first time on January 5.

Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times as well as the ESPN report indicate that Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan is also a potential finalist for the Falcons head coaching position. Rex’s brother Rob, currently the Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator worked as an assistant for the New England Patriots when new Falcons GM Tom Dimitroff first arrived there. It is unknown if Ryan will be granted a second interview as well. He originally interviewed last Monday.

UPDATE: Updating the previous report, Pasquarelli writes that Rex Ryan was en route to Atlanta on Monday night to conduct a second interview with the team as well.
