Atlanta Falcons interview Bill Belichick for head-coaching job

The Atlanta Falcons have officially expressed interest in the coach who handed the franchise the most painful loss in team history.

The Falcons announced Monday they have interviewed former New England coach Bill Belichick for their head-coaching vacancy, the first known interview done by Belichick since he and the Patriots mutually parted ways last week.

Belichick, 71, has been a head coach for 29 seasons -- 24 in New England and five in Cleveland, where he compiled a 302-165 overall record, including six Super Bowl titles with the Patriots.
