ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that Dallas Cowboys defensive coach Dan Quinn declined to interview with the Jacksonville Jaguars in a two-week window during which head coaches are permitted.
Schefter reported that “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.” “Jaguars asked permission to interview Quinn earlier in the week.”
He hasn’t yet interviewed, but he isn’t completely out of the race. While some thought he was not interested in the Jaguars job position, the latest report shows otherwise.
Tom Pelissero, an insider at the NFL Network, offered clarification. He stated that Quinn would like to complete the regular season before he can interview for head coaching positions.
Pelissero reported that Dan Quinn, Cowboys DC, didn’t decline an interview to coach the #Jaguars. “He wants to finish the regular season before he does any interviews. This is how the hiring process has worked in previous years, and it will again for most candidates this year.
For clarity: #Cowboys DC Dan Quinn didn’t decline an interview for the #Jaguars’ head coaching job, per source. He wants to get through the regular season before doing any interviews, which is how the hiring cycle has worked in past years and will for most candidates this year.

Quinn clearly wants the Cowboys to finish this season. Dallas won the NFC East, and now is vying for the No. The NFC playoff race is also being contested by Dallas as the No. 1 seed.
Quinn seems to want to manage Dallas’ business before considering other offers.
Is he going to get another job as a head coach?
