Ex-Falcons head coach Dan Quinn to remain in Dallas as Cowboys DC

Dan Quinn

Following several interviews with the Broncos and Colts, former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn has decided to stay in Dallas to coordinate the Cowboys’ defense.

This is the second hiring cycle in a row that Quinn has decided to remain put under Mike McCarthy. The Cowboys were eliminated from the postseason by the 49ers in what was one of the worst games I’ve ever seen Dak Prescott play. It’s America’s Team, so anything but a Super Bowl would be heavily scrutinized. And boy, has it been.

There are calls for Mike McCarthy to lose his job, Kellen Moore to get fired, and even some about Prescott getting the boot. None of that will happen, in my opinion. Jerry Jones might demand some change, but he’ll stick with the status quo. The Cowboys aren’t ever going to win a Super Bowl as currently constructed, but it was nothing to do with the coaching staff and everything to do with the roster.

The salary cap mismanagement going on in Arlington should be taught on college campuses. The Cowboys should’ve never paid Zeke, which is easy to say that now — hindsight is 20/20. However, I’m the founder member of the ‘Never Pay a Running Back Club’ and preached the same thing back in 2019.

As far as Quinn goes, staying in Dallas may be the best thing for him. There’s a legit possibility he ends up with the head coaching gig if Mike McCarthy falls short in 2023 (which he will). If the Cowboys promoted Dan Quinn to head coach, I think the entire city of Atlanta would belly laugh if the former Falcons coach went on to the most high-profile job in the NFL.
