Falcons name Saints' Terry Fontenot as general manager

ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Falcons named Terry Fontenot, who has spent 16 seasons with division rival New Orleans, the team's general manager on Tuesday.

The 40-year-old Fontenot becomes Atlanta's first Black GM.

Fontenot helped build a consistent winner as the Saints' vice president and assistant general manager in charge of pro personnel. The Falcons fired general manager Thomas Dimitroff and coach Dan Quinn following a 0-5 start this season, which led to a 4-12 finish, Atlanta's third consecutive losing season.
