Prior to Quinn becoming the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator, he spent time with the 49ers, Dolphins, Jets and Seahawks in various positions. He then spent six seasons as the Atlanta Falcons’ head coach, losing his job before the 2021-2022 season.
Quinn won a Super Bowl as the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator, and took the Falcons to a Super Bowl as a head coach. Now, he will remain with the Cowboys and try and win a Super Bowl for the first time since 1996.
