Falcons add Scott Pioli as assistant GM


The Atlanta Falcons have added Scott Pioli as an assistant to general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

Pioli was fired by the Kansas City Chiefs after a 2-14 season in 2012. With many of Pioli’s players in place, the Chiefs rebounded to go 11-5 this season


Dimitroff and Pioli have a close relationship from their time working together in New England. The Falcons will hope to fix a team beset by injuries in 2013.
