Top candidate removes himself from consideration for NFL head coach jobs

Dan Quinn

There are still several head coaching vacancies around the NFL, but Dan Quinn will not be filling one of them.

Quinn has informed teams that he will remain with the Dallas Cowboys as defensive coordinator in 2022, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The 51-year-old had received interview requests from six teams.

The timing of the Quinn news may not have been a coincidence. Pelissero’s report surfaced not long after Matt Eberflus was hired as head coach of the Chicago Bears and Nathaniel Hackett landed the Denver Broncos job. Quinn was viewed as a favorite for the Broncos job at one point. It’s possible he would have taken it if offered.

Quinn should have just as good of a chance at landing a head coaching job next offseason. He was expected to pass on one opening from the start, so it sounds like it would have taken the perfect opportunity to convince him to leave Dallas.
