The dark horse in Denver’s HC search

Dan Quinn, Denver Broncos, NFL

Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn may be the favorite in Denver’s head coaching search thanks to his familiarity with the organization and quarterback Russell Wilson.

Per Oddschecker, Quinn has the best odds to become Denver’s next HC over Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh and former Saints HC Sean Payton. Although Harbaugh and Payton are more distinguished, Quinn interviewed for the HC job last year and left a strong impression even though Denver hired Nathaniel Hackett.

“Quinn has a close relationship with Broncos general manager George Paton and would be a strong candidate for the job if he’s willing to engage with Denver again,” wrote NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero. 

According to longtime Broncos reporter Mike Klis, the Broncos plan to interview Quinn on Friday. He can use Wilson liking him and his eye for offensive talent as a selling point.
