Aden Durde enters his third season with the Falcons as defensive assistant working with the defensive line. In 2019, Durde assisted in overseeing a unit that was anchored by Grady Jarrett and Tyeler Davison. The Falcons defense held opponents to 103.5 rushing yards over the final eight weeks of the season, which ranked 10th in NFL. Additional, the Falcons tallied 21 sacks over the final eight games - tied for the 10th most in the league during that span.
Durde joined the Falcons after serving as the head of football development at NFLUK, where he helped guide the International Player Pathway program. Working with Super Bowl champion and former Atlanta Falcon Osi Umenyiora, Durde helped four international players, tight end Alex Gray (Atlanta), defensive end Alex Jenkins (New Orleans), defensive end Efe Obada (Carolina), and linebacker Eric Nzeocha (Tampa Bay) transition to practice squads in 2017.
