Dan Quinn named Seattle’s defensive coordinator

The Seahawks announced Dan Quinn as the new defensive coordinator on Thursday morning, the same day Gus Bradley was named the Jaguars head coach.

Quinn coached for two years with the Seahawks, hired in 2009 by Jim Mora and named defensive line coach and associate head coach. He was one of two assistants retained by Pete Carroll. Quinn spent a year working on Carroll’s staff, but left in early 2011 to become the defensive coordinator at University of Florida.

He served in that position for two years, and now returns to Seattle in the position the Seahawks initially expected to hire him in 2009.

Quinn was an assistant with the Jets at that time, having previously worked with the Dolphins and in San Francisco while Mora was the defensive coordinator.

Like Bradley, Quinn is an energetic, enthusiastic coach. Like Bradley, Quinn shaves his head.
