Falcons hire Caldwell to direct scouting

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff hired David Caldwell from the Indianapolis Colts as director of college scouting on Wednesday.

Caldwell spent the last 10 seasons with the Colts, including the last two as western regional scout.

Caldwell will assume the same position with Atlanta that Dimitroff held in New England before he was hired by the Falcons this year.

"He comes to us from a highly respected and very successful team," said Dimitroff of Caldwell. "He is well respected around the NFL and will be a great asset to the scouting department."
