REPORT: Defensive Coordinator Dan Quinn Staying w/ Cowboys in 2022

After several interviews for head- vacancies throughout the NFL, has reportedly informed his suitors that he will be returning to the Cowboys in 2022. Quinn spent last year as Dallas' and helped spark a dramatic turnaround on that side of the ball.

After his five-plus seasons with the , which included a trip to the in 2016, Quinn's experience and work with Dallas' got him in talks with the Bears, Broncos, Dolphins, Giants, Jaguars, and Vikings that we've heard about. But after Chicago and Denver announced their hires of other candidates this week, it appears Quinn would rather commit to the Cowboys than entertain other options.

The prospect of returning to work with young superstars like and has to be a huge draw for Quinn. While the Cowboys do have some concerns with , , and others from last year's defense, guys like Parsons, Diggs, , , , and others make up a strong, youthful core that Dan can build on going forward.

Despite all of the hoopla about their potential departures, it now appears that both Dan Quinn and may be back in 2022. But while some are dubious about Moore's continued work on , everyone should be thrilled to see Quinn running it back with the Cowboys next year!

Quinn has seen the QB desert these teams are offering. Taking over teams in QB purgatory is a sure way to be fired after a couple of seasons of agony.
Better to enjoy the Boys and Dak and Parsons than tear hair out over Fields or Jones .


I think we’ll see he’s average for the talent he had.
I was hoping to see a Whitt promotion from db to DC

You have lost your mind!! You are the first and only person I have seen say that Quinn isn’t good!! And Most of the talent we have on defense is because of Dan Quinn!! Nobody has ever heard of Jayron Kearse until Dan Quinn put him on the field!! And Micah Parsons would’ve only been a linebacker if it wasn’t for Dan Quinn!! Dan Quinn turned this defense from a bottom 5 team to arguably a top 5 defense in just 1 year…. Imagine what he can do with 2 or 3 years!! I’ll take my chances with Quinn…. Whitt can stay where he is!!


Hopefully, he works on cleaning up the penalties by his D this off season. Ticky tack PI calls with a lot of hand fighting are one thing, but blatant holds and face guarding by the secondary and unforced errors like lining up off sides and jumping the snap need to be cleaned up. He also needs to instill some responsibility discipline as well. There were too many blown coverages and freelancing last season that bit us for huge gains and/or 3rd and long conversions.
