Denver Broncos are said to be looking for an assistant coach at the Dallas Cowboys to replace Vic Fangio.
Since winning Super Bowl 50, the Denver Broncos have never made it to playoffs. Vic Fangio, the Broncos’ head coach, is expected to experience his third consecutive losing season. This leaves them pondering their options as they enter the regular-season finale.
According to Jason La Canfora (CBS Sports Insider),, the Broncos are expected to move on from Fangio after this season and that Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn “will quickly emerge as a top candidate there.”
According to reports, the Broncos are interested in Vic Fangio’s assistant for Cowboys
Quinn was fired from his position as Atlanta Falcons’ head coach last year. Now, he is one of the top coaching candidates in the cycle, thanks in part to the work he has done in his first season as Dallas’ defensive coordinator.
Dallas allowed an average of 20.8 point per game entering Week 18. This is the seventh-lowest NFL score. But the key to the Cowboys’ success is their ability to take away the ball from the opposition. Dallas has recorded 33 turnovers through 16 games: 25 interceptions, eight fumbles, and 32 touchdowns. For the most league points, the Indianapolis Colts are tied with them.
Quinn was the Seattle Seahawks’ defensive coordinator between 2013-14, winning Super Bowl 48. Quinn was then hired as Falcons’ head coach. His second season saw the Falcons reach Super Bowl 51. However, they were defeated in overtime by the New England Patriots.
Quinn has a 43-42 regular season record and a 3-1 playoff record as a head coaching coach.
Quinn could be a replacement for Fangio if the Broncos decide to part ways.
