When you consider the head coaches the Atlanta Falcons have interviewed thus far it is interesting to consider the changes they might make. For example, if Bill Belichick or Jim Harbaugh were to take over major changes are to follow. While on the other hand if Atlanta goes with a younger coordinator like Ben Johnson a lot of the coaching staff and core pieces are likely to remain.

Jim Harbaugh is a proven winner and would be a great addition to the Falcons. What he did with the 49ers was extremely impressive and easily forgotten. The coach followed this up by winning a National Championship at Michigan and turning around the program.

Now if the head coach is ready to return to the NFL there are few rosters and divisions that are better set up for the veteran coach. While Harbaugh may have a complicated reputation there is no questioning that where he goes winning follows. Winning that Atlanta fans badly need after losing for much of the last decade.

With this in mind, let's look at the potential players with ties to Harbaugh that could follow the head coach to Atlanta including a former quarterback that we know Harbaugh has championed.
