Jeff Ulbrich



Ulbrich is entering his sixth year as the Falcons linebackers coach and his first as Assistant Head Coach. Following a tumultuous start to the 2019 season, Head Coach Dan Quinn leaned heavily on Ulbrich and Raheem Morris to get the club's defense turned around. With Ulbrich's assistance, Atlanta's defense vaulted from the bottom of the league rankings to the top 10 in sacks (32nd to 10th), scoring efficiency (32nd to 9th), and red zone efficiency (31st to 6th) over the final eight weeks of the season. The Falcons defensive turnaround helped the club closeout 2019 with a 6-2 record.

 Ulbrich once again guided Pro Bowl linebacker Deion Jones to a standout season. The LSU product notched his third season with 100+ tackles (110) while adding eight tackles for loss and four quarterback hits. Jones earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors in Week 17 after he sealed Atlanta's 28-22 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a walk-off, 27-yard pick-six.
