Colts owner Jim Irsay announced the team completed an interview with Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn on Friday night.

The Colts also interviewed Packers special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia and Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan on Friday. That’s 11 completed interviews for the team.

It was the second interview of the day for Quinn, who also met with the Broncos.

Quinn was the Falcons’ head coach from 2015-20, going 43-42 in the regular season and 3-2 in the postseason. In Super Bowl LI, the Falcons allowed Tom Brady to rally the Patriots to a 34-28 overtime win.

Quinn has spent the past two seasons with the Cowboys. In 2022, Dallas finished fifth in points allowed and 12th in yards allowed.

The Colts have 14 coaches on their interview list, including interim coach Jeff Saturday who went 1-7 while leading the team in 2022. They are the only team of the five looking for a new head coach not to have interest in former Saints coach Sean Payton.

  1. I hope some team hires Dan Quinn as it’s next head coach because he is a really good coach.

  2. Got the 49ers on Sunday night, a 49ers team with an explosive offense, and he spends the last two days doing interviews.

    If Brock Purdy beats the Cowboys, I hope he leaves for another team.

    He had all the time he needed after the playoffs to do interviews.

  3. Loser of niners cowboys also loses their D coordinator. Same thing happened between niners and Vikings in the playoffs. Both teams had coordinators interviewing for spots, the loser got the job so they could get to work on their new team because owners have literally zero patience to wait a couple weeks to make sure they get the best candidate.

  4. There’s the Quinn – Matt Ryan connection from ATL meaning reminiscing over 28-3 and Ryan bringing Quinn up to date with 33-0

  5. Dan Quinn may be a good coach, I think so but what do I know? On behalf on many Jaguars fans, I hope they hire Jeff Saturday, he’s a better fit.
