Arthur Smith signs deal to be Falcons coach

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Arthur Smith has signed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons to be their next coach, the team announced Saturday.

Smith, a former Tennessee Titans assistant, agreed to terms Friday. Neither Smith nor any other team official will be made available to reporters until next week.

"Throughout our research and interview process, Arthur stood out amongst a very deep and very talented candidate pool with an outstanding plan for our organization to return to the level of competition our fans deserve and expect," Falcons owner Arthur Blank said in a statement.
