Washington Football Team Hires Dan Quinn As Head Coach

The Washington Football Team has reached an agreement with former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to become their new head coach, sources familiar with the decision confirmed on Thursday. The team is set to make an official announcement soon.

Quinn, 53, recently served as the defensive coordinator for the Cowboys in the NFC East and previously coached the Atlanta Falcons for over five seasons. During his tenure with the Falcons, he led the team to a Super Bowl appearance in 2016. However, the Falcons parted ways with Quinn after a disappointing start to the 2020 season.

Washington’s decision to hire Quinn comes after several other coaching candidates, including Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson and Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald, were no longer available for consideration.

The move signifies a fresh start for the Washington Football Team, which has been seeking a new direction following a disappointing run under former head coach Ron Rivera. The team’s controlling owner, Josh Harris, and newly appointed general manager and head of football operations, Adam Peters, were determined to find a coach who could bring a new approach to the organization.

This is Quinn’s second stint as an NFL head coach, and he will now have the opportunity to build his own coaching staff. The future of current offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, who was considered a top candidate for the head coaching position, is yet to be determined.

With the addition of Quinn, the Washington Football Team hopes to turn around their fortunes and create a winning culture. Quinn inherits a team that finished with a 4-13 record last season and hasn’t had a winning record since 2016. The team holds the No. 2 pick in the upcoming 2024 draft and has significant cap space, providing an opportunity for Quinn to make substantial changes and build a strong foundation for the future.
