ARLINGTON— One of the big-name coordinators has informed the Cowboys that he intends to return to the team.
According to reports, Dallas Cowboy’s defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has informed the team that he will return to the team. Quinn was a head coaching candidate around the NFL and even interviewed a couple of times with a few teams.
Quinn has been in Dallas for the past two seasons and led a defensive resurgence with the team. In 2020, the Cowboys not only drafted All-Pro Micah Parsons, who quickly established himself as one of the best defensive players in the league, but the Cowboys led the NFL in turnovers that had been lacking in the past.
In 2022, the Cowboys had 16 interceptions and 17 fumble recoveries for a league-leading 33 turnovers on defense. Rookie DaRon Bland led the team with five interceptions, Malik Hooker and Trevon Diggs tied for second with three each, and five players each had one. Parsons and rookie Sam Williams each had three fumble recoveries while four players had two and four players had one.
Dallas was tied for third in sacks with 54 in big part to Parsons’ 13.5, followed by Dorance Armstrong with 8.5, and Demarcus Lawrence and Dante Fowler are tied for third with six.
The defensive players love Quinn as a coach, which can help retain Leighton Vander Esch, Donovan Wilson, and Dante Fowler.
It remains to be seen if offensive coordinator Kellen Moore will return to the team and still have to do an in-house interview. In his press conference today, head coach Mike McCarthy did not confirm Moore would return. However, the Carolina Panthers hired Frank Reich this afternoon, the head coaching opportunity Moore was linked to.
