Mora’s three-year tenure ended with a tumultuous three-game losing streak that brought his overall record to 26-22. Mora is the second coach in the franchise’s 41-year history to be fired with a winning record.
The brunt of that success came in Mora’s first season, when, as a first-time head coach, he guided the Falcons to an 11-5 regular season record and a berth in the NFC championship game.
I’m not a Falcons’ fan, but I liked the guy. He fit in well with the community and seemed like a decent guy — a more decent guy than some of those he had to coach. Bad luck this year. Sorry Jim.
