Browns ask to interview Seahawks DC Dan Quinn

AP

The Browns might end up going for an older coach yet, but at the moment, they’re leaning toward another young coordinator.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Browns have asked permission to interview Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn for their vacant position.

Quinn has previously worked as the defensive line coach for the Seahawks, Jets, Dolphins and 49ers, along with the University of Florida.

The 43-year-old assistant joins 35-year-old Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase as candidates they’re known to have asked to talk to.

If the Browns wanted a Seahawks assistant, they probably should have spent more time talking to Gus Bradley last year. He ended up with the Jaguars, and beat the Browns down the stretch in one of the games that might have doomed Rob Chudzinski.

  1. Ok props to Dan, but he has only been back in the league a year and yes when working for a defense that already has insane talent its gonna make u shine..gutsy move Cleveland

  2. Why don’t the just take our offensive coordinator, Derrell Bevell? I like Quinn better than Bradley, so I’d like if the Hawks could hold onto him, but if he gets a head coaching opportunity, I wouldn’t blame him for not taking it.

  3. Dont wory Dom, they would probably fire him after the first pre-season game anyways!!!!

    What a terrible franchise….terrible
    I wouldn’t be surprised if they fired him to bring in Schiano…..ouch!!!!!

  4. DC contenders:

    Quinn/Seattle
    McDermott/Carolina
    Sutton/KC
    Zimmer/Cincy

    OC contenders:

    Clements/ Green Bay
    Gruden/Concy
    Pederson/KC

  5. It worked out well for the Jags…. I mean they did beat Cleveland. Anyone ever think that maybe the talent and Pete’s presence makes them shine? I hate Carroll with a passion but he does know defense.

  6. I was glad to see Gus Bradley go even though he had the top rated defense because he didn’t have the killer instinct to close games (prevent defense lost 2 or 3 games last year).

    Dan Quinn is the brings the perfect amount of aggressiveness and smart calls. I hope he remains Seattle’s defensive coordinator because the Browns have an excellent one in Ray Horton. I think if Quinn has another year like this year there will be no doubt he will be a head coach somewhere.

  7. Is Seattle going to get blown up after this season? Both Quinn and Bevell will get looks. Then new head coaches usually pilfer a few coaches from their old staff to follow them to a new team. Carroll is going to be lucky if there is even a pack of gum left behind.

    Pete Carroll has deep coaching connections from his NFL and college days. He had Alex Gibbs before Tom Cable took over. Brought on Gus Bradley when nobody even knew who he was. Ken Norton Jr has coached up the linebackers as well as anybody. Secondary coach Kris Richard has 3 Pro Bowl player and Maxwell has 4 picks in 4 games. Seahawk coaches will be just fine.

  9. Can the 49ers pay Clev to take Roman? Seriously though I get theres only 32 of those jobs but Cle and Oakland seem to be where coaches go to die.

  10. I’m sick of all these pathetic teams taking out coaches. Same thing happened to Bradley last year. These coaches are under contract which means they shouldn’t be able to go anywhere until their contract is up. That’s what a contract is for after all. That said, I guess the Browns are too stupid to realize Quinn took over this defense which was already built. He was handed the keys. He’s not some genius who created it. Why would anyone fake that job anyways? You will be fired in a year, LOl.

  11. I find it ironic that Dan Quinn looks like Gus Bradley, another great DC that happens to be bald with a goatee. He’s getting even better results with the Seahawks’ defense this year, so maybe he will be good. But after only two years of coordinator experience (one pro), he may yet be a little green.
