Dan Quinn may be on the cusp of getting another head coaching job.

The current defensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys is the top head coaching candidate for the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks if both jobs open up.

Per the report:

Dan Quinn, the highly coveted defensive coordinator of the Cowboys, will be a “top candidate” for the Broncos job should Denver dismiss Vic Fangio after this weekend. And he’ll be a top candidate if Seattle parts ways with Pete Carroll as well.

Denver is finishing Year 3 under Fangio and is not making the playoffs. The 7-9 Broncos play the heavily favored Chiefs today. Seattle is 6-10 and finishes Sunday against favored Arizona.

There is also sourced information about Quinn going back to Seattle, where he was once the defensive coordinator under head coach Pete Carroll. But Carroll, an institution in Seattle, isn’t on the same thin ice, it seems, as Fangio is.

Quinn, 51, was the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 2015 to 2020. Prior to becoming a head coach, Quinn was the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks under Pete Carroll.
