DC Dan Quinn Staying with Cowboys: Announces Major Decision on Head Coaching Future

After much speculation, it has been confirmed that Dan Quinn will be returning to the Dallas Cowboys as defensive coordinator. This news comes after Quinn reportedly interviewed for the head coaching positions of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Atlanta Falcons.

Quinn released a statement to Yahoo Sports saying, “I have informed the teams that I interviewed with that I have decided to remain in Dallas as the defensive coordinator. I am grateful for their interest, and I feel very fortunate to be part of such a great organization in the Cowboys.”

The Cowboys organization also released a statement expressing their support for Quinn’s decision. They said, “We are very pleased to have Dan remain as our defensive coordinator. He has been an integral part of our team and we are excited to have him continue to lead our defense into the future.”

The future of the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore, is still unclear. NFL.com reports that he may be looking for a head coaching job elsewhere, but no official statement has been released yet.

For now, Quinn is staying with the Cowboys, and his decision has been met with support from the team and from fans.
