Sunday's loss to the Panthers proved to be the deciding factor for Mike Smith's tenure in Atlanta.

The Falcons announced Monday morning they fired the coach after the team was blown out 34-3 at home in a game that decided the NFC South.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier Sunday that a win against Carolina might not have even been enough to save Smith's job.

Rapoport also reported that the Falcons retained a search firm in the event they also fire general manager Thomas Dimitroff, per a source close to the situation.

Smith brought the Falcons to the playoffs four times during his seven-year career with the team. The highlight was an NFC Championship appearance following a 13-3 regular-season campaign in 2012. In fact, the Falcons posted just two losing seasons under Smith, but those came in the last two years.

Smith ends his time in Atlanta with a 66-46 record.
