The NFL regular season wrapped up last night, and Dan Quinn is already fielding interview requests for a head coaching job.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Denver Broncos have filed a request to speak with Quinn about its coaching vacancy.

Quinn interviewed with the Broncos last season, but was passed on for Nathaniel Hackett. After a 4-11 start to the season, Hackett was fired after just 15 games into his head coaching career.

After that failed attempt at finding the right man for the job, Quinn has another shot at landing the head coaching job in Denver. Other candidates linked to the opening include: former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, Broncos defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero and Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.

Dan Quinn head coaching record

D.C. was the Atlanta Falcons head coach for six years from 2015-2020. In that time, he led the Falcons to a 43-42 regular season record, and a 3-2 postseason record.

In 2016, Quinn led Atlanta to a Super Bowl appearance vs. the New England Patriots. The Falcons were up 28-3 midway through the third quarter, but New England scored 31-unanswered points en route to the largest comeback win in Super Bowl history.

Four seasons later in 2020, Quinn was fired after an 0-5 start to the year. The Dallas Cowboys made D.C. its defensive coordinator in 2021.
Last year, the Cowboys allowed 21 points per game, good for the seventh-best mark in the NFL. This season’s squad improved on that stat, allowing 20 points per game, ranking fourth.
