Falcons open camp with questions about hiring of Durkin

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have brought in former Maryland coach DJ Durkin to serve as a guest coach during training camp, drawing immediate scrutiny over the wisdom of taking on someone who was fired from his previous job after a player's death.

This is the first coaching stint for Durkin since he was dismissed by the Terrapins last October. While Durkin will only be with the Falcons during training camp, coach Dan Quinn faced questions about his decision following Monday's opening practice.

Quinn insists that he "did due diligence" to address any concerns about Durkin's past and believes he can help the team improve defensively.
