Quinn’s decision will come as a pleasant surprise to Cowboys fans and likely an unexpected setback for several teams with coaching vacancies. The Cowboys defensive coordinator took part in multiple interviews and was seen as a contender for jobs in Denver and Arizona.
Quinn went 43-42 as head coach of the Atlanta Falcons and reached the Super Bowl. This is the second consecutive offseason he has pulled his name out of head coach consideration, and a quote he offered during the season may give some insight as to why.
