" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Today Dan Quinn penned a heartfelt letter to the city of Atlanta and Falcons fans. Quinn was let go from the Falcons earlier this week following the team's 5th straight loss this season. In his two page letter, he said:

"How fortunate am I that I close this chapter the very same way I opened it—with gratitude.

Being the Head Coach of your Atlanta Falcons has been the privilege of a lifetime. I can't express my appreciation enough to Arthur Blank for the opportunity to represent this organization for the past six seasons. It truly has been my family. My wife Stacey and I will forever be grateful for every single person in the organization who made our lives better and fuller.

I will miss so many things, but none more than the men in the locker room. From pro bowlers to practice squad players, it was an honor to fight shoulder-to-shoulder with you and be a part of your lives on and off the field.

Finally, to the people of Atlanta and Falcons fans everywhere. I can't thank you enough for making this Jersey boy feel right at home. I know there are great things ahead for this team and I'll continue to root like hell for them, and for you. I hope I represented your team with the grace and character you deserve."

He is being praised on social media for being a class act for sharing kind words and even thanking the team even after being let go.
