The Atlanta Falcons added three assistants to their coaching staff on Wednesday.
The Falcons announced the hirings of running backs coach Bernie Parmalee, offensive assistant Chad Walker assistant special teams coach Mayur Chaudhari.
Parmalee has spent the last three seasons as an assistant running backs coach with the Oakland Raiders. He replaces Keith Carter, who is now the offensive line coach with the Tennessee Titans.
Parmalee began his NFL coaching career as a tight ends coach and special teams assistant with the Miami Dolphins in 2002. He spent five seasons at Notre Dame in the same roles before joining the Kansas City Chiefs as a tight ends coach in 2010.
Walker returns to the Falcons after serving as an assistant defensive backs coach in 2015 and assistant linebackers coach in 2016. He spent last season coaching outside linebackers at Arkansas.
Chaudhari served as the special teams coordinator at the University of Hawaii.
