FLOWERY BRANCH — Mark Collins, who has been a defensive assistant for the past four seasons, was promoted to outside linebackers coach, the team announced on Monday.

The Falcons also added Andrew Thacker as a defensive assistant.

“We are pleased to promote Mark to outside linebacker coach,” said Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith in a statement released by the team. “He has proved to be a valuable part of our coaching staff the last four seasons and we are confident that he will continue to help develop our outside linebackers. Andrew is a young coach who has experience in major college football and we feel he will be an asset to our staff.”

Thacker, a native of Cartersville who played safety at Gainesville High and Furman, was the safeties coach at Southern Mississippi last season. He previously coached at Oklahoma State and Central Florida.
