The Dallas Cowboys were widely expected to be in the market for a pair of new coordinators at the start of the NFL offseason. Both defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore were among the top candidates for one of the various head coaching vacancies across the league. As of now, however, neither have been poached from Dallas, and Quinn has committed his future to the Cowboys. Well, Quinn has revealed why he opted to return to Dallas rather than take a head coaching job elsewhere.

Quinn told CowboysSI.com that he has unfinished business in Dallas and is dedicated to achieving the team’s ultimate goal of hoisting a Lombardi Trophy.
“I have unfinished business here,” Quinn said. “We have the right people in place to accomplish the things everyone in this building is working to accomplish. We’re doing that right now. We’re doing it today, grinding toward a goal.”
The Cowboys infamously fell short in the NFL Wild Card round, suffering a crushing defeat at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers. The entire franchise felt the weight of the disappointment from the loss, and rather than jump ship to get back into a head coaching role, Quinn has devoted himself to the Cowboys’ project.
In his first season as defensive coordinator, the Cowboys led the NFL with 34 takeaways. Boasting one of the best offenses and defenses in the league, Dallas has the means to contend for a Super Bowl, and Quinn wants to do everything in his power to make that dream a reality.
