 Thomas Dimitroff Biography

Dimitroff grew up in Canada, where his father, Tom Dimitroff, Sr., was a football coach with the Ottawa Rough Riders, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the University of Guelph in Ontario. In 1983, Dimitroff served as an equipment manager for the Guelph football team.

He played a defensive back for the Gryphons football team and was team captain. Dimitroff graduated from Guelph with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1990. After graduating, Dimitroff joined the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League as their Canadian scouting coordinator but worked in many areas of the team's operations for the two seasons he was there. In 1992, he worked in the Dallas, Texas, office of the World League of American Football, tracking NFL player transactions and rosters. When the league folded later that year, Dimitroff moved to Japan, where he helped coach a friend's corporate American football team.

Dimitroff then considered leaving the football world for business, but instead he went back to the United States, where he joined the Cleveland Browns' grounds crew; his father was a scout for the team at the time. There he worked under then-head coach Bill Belichick and then-pro personnel assistant Scott Pioli. At the same time, he worked as a part-time scout for the Kansas City Chiefs in 1993. In 1994, Dimitroff became a full-time area scout for the Detroit Lions, a position he held through 1997. He then held a similar college scouting position with the Browns from 1998 through 2001.

In 2002, Dimitroff re-joined Belichick and Pioli with the New England Patriots as a national scout. He spent the season reporting on the nation's top prospects before being promoted to director of college scouting on June 11, 2003. He oversaw the team's college scouting operations through the 2007 season.

After six seasons with the Patriots, Dimitroff was hired as the Falcons' general manager on January 13, 2008.

In the 2008 NFL Draft, Dimitroff and the Falcons drafted both quarterback Matt Ryan and offensive lineman Sam Baker in the first round. The Falcons also signed free agent running back Michael Turner from the San Diego Chargers, who was selected to the 2009 Pro Bowl in his first year with the team. The Falcons, under first-year head coach Mike Smith, reached the playoffs in 2008 for the first time in four seasons, but lost to the Arizona Cardinals in the opening round. Soon after, Sporting News named Dimitroff their 2008 NFL Executive of the Year.

The Falcons finished 97 in 2009, missing the playoffs. In 2010, the Falcons finished 133, earning homefield advantage for the duration of the playoffs; however, they lost to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round. Dimitroff was named the 2010 NFL Executive of the Year by the Sporting News, his second time receiving the award.
