The Dallas Cowboys are going about their business, and their business is the 2024 offseason instead of the rest of the NFL playoffs. They have already made one huge decision and that was to stick with Mike McCarthy for another year. They even made the decision to keep McCarthy in a lame-duck season instead of extending his contract.
Quinn has interviewed for a head coaching spot before but always returned to Dallas. This season he seems intent on seeing it through if he can grab a head coaching position. He is already schedule for second interviews with three different teams.
He has a second interview with the Seattle Seahawks, and this one seems like the most likely path given his history with the franchise.
The #Seahawks are setting up second interviews with head coaching candidates, including #Panthers DC Ejiro Evero, #Raiders DC Patrick Graham, #Giants OC Mike Kafka, #Rams DC Raheem Morris and #Cowboys DC Dan Quinn, per sources. There likely will be others too. A thorough process.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 21, 2024
He is also in contention for the Tennessee Titans job that was left empty with the firing of Mike Vrabel.
The #Titans plan to bring in #Cowboys DC Dan Quinn for a second interview for their head coaching job this week, per source.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 22, 2024
Quinn is the third candidate headed to Round 2 with Tennessee, joining #Panthers OC Thomas Brown and #Bengals OC Brian Callahan.
Then there is the Washington Commanders. If Quinn ended up there, it would mean seeing him twice a year. The Commanders defense is in shambles and they still need a dependable quarterback for the future. This one would be a heavy lift for Quinn.
