    The Atlanta Falcons reached an agreement with Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn on a five-year deal to be the franchise's new head coach, sources told ESPN early Monday morning.

    Quinn is expected to fly to Atlanta on Monday with Falcons officials, including owner Arthur Blank, and will be introduced at a Tuesday news conference, sources told ESPN.

    The Falcons were prohibited from agreeing to a contract with Quinn until after the Seahawks finished competing in Sunday's Super Bowl.

    Quinn would not discuss the move after the Seahawks' 28-24 loss to the Patriots.

    "In respect to this game, what a terrific game we were all a part of," Quinn said. "So for tonight I'd like to make the focus all about our players, both teams'. It was a great contest. You could see how hard guys played. As a coach, that's really what you're looking for, great effort first. ... You see the guys in the locker room, they gave everything they had. You can't ask for more than that as a coach."
