ATLANTA – The Atlanta Falcons announced that they have extended general manager Thomas Dimitroff's contract for three years, through 2019.
Dimitroff's contract extension coincides with that of Falcons' head coach Dan Quinn.
“Thomas and I have developed a great relationship since the time I accepted this job,” Quinn said. “The partnership between a head coach and general manager is incredibly important when building a winning team. We have a common vision when it comes to constructing this roster and I believe we have built a solid foundation over the last two years. He is one of the best talent evaluators I have ever been around, and I’m fired up for us to continue this process together.”
In his nine years with the Falcons, Dimitroff’s rosters have posted an 80-57 record – the eighth best record in the NFL during that time period, according to the Falcons' website.
The Falcons' are 6-3, and will play the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia on Nov. 13. The Falcons' next home game is in the Georgia Dome against the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 27.
