In his first season as Cowboys’ defensive coordinator, Dan Quinn has reestablished his name. Dallas does want to lose Dan Quinn , but the former Atlanta Falcons coach could be a valuable resource for those looking to become head coaches.
Quinn is not leaving to Jacksonville Jaguars. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Quinn has withdrawn from the race to replace Urban Meyer.
Schefter tweeted: “Cowboys’ DC Dan Quinn won’t interview with Jaguars for their HC position during the two week window in which HC interviews can be allowed, per source.” “Jaguars asked permission to interview Quinn this week.”
Quinn is a sought-after coach, but it’s clear that he’s thoughtful about his next opportunity. Quinn, the defensive coordinator, has a great job in Dallas right now. He is praised for his efforts in fixing the defense.
Jacksonville, on the other hand was a great team last season. It’s not looking so good this season. The Jaguars were in worse shape after Meyer’s disastrous tenure.
Trevor Lawrence is a great quarterback. Jacksonville may lose their way to back. The NFL Draft will give you the No. 1 pick. Kayvon Thibodeaux from Oregon and Aidan Hutchinson from Michigan could join Lawrence and the Jaguars in April.
Jacksonville still has many other options that they could use in their search. Although Dan Quinn might not be interested in the Jaguars job position, a Cowboys coordinator may be able to make his way to Jacksonville. The Jaguars granted permission Tuesday to interview Kellen Moore, Dallas’ offensive coordinator, for their opening.
The opportunity to work alongside Lawrence is possible if the Jaguars will give Moore the keys. He has never been a head coach, unlike Quinn.
Moore will still be competing for the job. The Jaguars requested that they interview both the Cowboys coordinators and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coordinators.
First, Byron Leftwich, the offensive coordinator, was the Jacksonville’s starting quarterback for multiple seasons. Todd Bowles, the New York Jets’ defensive coordinator, is on the opposite side. Both men will be considered for multiple positions this offseason.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are clearly looking for a new head coach. Many teams will be interested in the Dallas Cowboys staff, if their search is any indication.
