Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has multiple suitors for head coaching vacancies

From the Cowboys’ perspective, some viewed it as a miracle that defensive coordinator Dan Quinn did not get a head coaching job last offseason. Instead, he chose to stay with the team for a second season, likely passing on other opportunities elsewhere. This year could be a different story in Dallas, as the Denver Broncos will officially interview Quinn on Friday, Jan. 20, about their head coaching vacancy.

Quinn has been linked to the Broncos dating back to last offseason, and with another strong season as the Cowboys defensive coordinator, Quinn’s name is popping up often in coaching rumors. Given how poorly the Nathaniel Hackett experiment went for Denver, with Hackett fired during his first season, the Broncos could be seeking someone with previous head coaching experience. Quinn fits the bill as the former head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, taking them to a Super Bowl in 2016.

The Broncos are not the only team interested in interviewing Quinn regarding their head coaching vacancy. According to multiple sources, the Indianapolis Colts have requested permission to interview Quinn regarding their head coaching job.

Quinn has quickly turned around this Dallas defense making it one of the best in football over the past two years. Since his hire, it is clear that the players love playing for Quinn. Teams around the league see that and seem willing to give him another shot as a head coach.

After two years of being the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks, where most consider him responsible for the Legion of Boom, the Atlanta Falcons hired him as their head coach. He lasted six years in Atlanta, making it to a Super Bowl in 2016, before getting fired after the 2020 season. He was then hired by the Cowboys to be their defensive coordinator, where his impact was immediately felt.
