Washington Commanders’ Dan Quinn is looking forward to his second chance as head coach

The Washington Commanders will be one of the most exciting NFL teams to watch during the 2024 NFL season. After a major overhaul of the franchise—including ownership, coaching staff, and roster—there is a new lease of life in the DMV.

Dan Quinn was eventually hired as the team’s head coach because he brings a ton of NFL experience to the Commanders. While this is a huge opportunity for Washington to turn its franchise around, Quinn gets the opportunity to really build something in the DMV.

The Commanders’ new head coach joined Scott Kaplan and Crew’s podcast on Thursday and discussed the possibility of joining the franchise and becoming an NFL head coach again.

“Yeah, it’s cool, man. You want to make sure you learn from past experiences so you can apply them. And it’s cool to be here in the nation’s capital and know that this was a strong, proud program. And to be able to connect that back to the city and the area, that’s what I enjoy,” Quinn explained. “But more than anything, man, I love the connection between the players, the coaches, what that looks like.”

Before serving as defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys, an NFC East rival of the Commanders, Quinn was fired as head coach of the Atlanta Falcons. Now, Quinn has the opportunity to take on the leadership role while revitalizing the franchise’s influence on the city and the connection between the two.

“You learn when you’ve been a coach and then you become a head coach; you coach everybody. You make sure you coach the coaches… the best of the best make sure they’re in sync with the whole team,” Quinn continued. “In my case, I’m not going to call the plays, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to put my fingerprints on the defense and certainly on the attitude and the style we want to play.”

The Commanders are hoping Quinn has what it takes to turn the franchise around. They drafted Jayden Daniels, a Heisman-winning quarterback, with the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft and completely restructured the roster. Exciting days lie ahead for the Commanders.
