In my ideal scenario they would have promoted from within, but I trust in PC/JS. This has to be a blow to some of Pete's defensive underlings that were certainly hoping for a promotion to that DC slot. Hopefully it doesn't sour any of them on the hawks' pipeline system.

Regardless, I have high hopes for Quinn's abilities and feel it's a quality hire based solely on the merits of Quinn himself.

Hopefully Quinn won't be the type to plan interviews the day before playoff games.

Don't know much about the guy, but from what I am hearing/reading, sounds like a nice pickup. Hopefully at a minimum a wash w/ what Bradley brought.

Awesome hire. Most of the D will be familiar with him. A blow for Bradley though, would have been a good DC for him but Quinn is smart enough to know that Seattle is the springboard for a HC gig and not JAX.

Nice, I like how this team is really getting after it this early in the off season. They seem to be on a mission! Super excited for next year!

Impressive work with the Florida D

What's not to love about this? It seems that this was very possibly the best hire to guarantee the least amount of upheaval and negative change for our D.

Come on, seriously. Even JS said the other day that the day before the game is a day for rest, no coaching or game planning going on. Get on the NFL for the rule, or lack of rule, but not on Gus Bradley for doing the best thing for his family and future. It's NOT the reason we lost on Sunday.

Quinn turned Big red into a moster and since he left red hasn't been as dominate. I love this hire because we can almost keep the same structure in place with are assistants. And its almost like bradley is not gone. Plus we get to see jaye howard dominate this year.

Good work, CANHawk.

Your sig works wonders.

Now change it to read something about the Seahawks being SB 48 winners and Wilson being the league MVP.

It was time for Bradley to move on, too many mistakes repeated and not learned from that ultimately ended our season....Quinn soothes the pain a bit and allows the healing of optimism to begin once again!

Great move - best case scenario! Quinn is not only very familiar with the scheme and coaching staff, but has worked with Mebane, Clemons, and Bryant. We not only get a very good DC, but someone who has a reputation as a VERY good Defensive Line coach. Immediate improvement to our base defense pass rush

This is the best choice to maintain continuity. Quinn is very familiar with what we do here and should get the best out of the players on our D-line.

He also might be able to do some great work with Irvin.

Solid signing by Pete.

It feels like, to me anyway, that Quinn was going to be the DC next season regardless of Gus Bradley being hired elsewhere or not.

Big Red developed plantar fasciitis (rumored) and wasn't the same all year. It is a painful and chronic condition and a new DC won't fix it. His drafted replacement will though, and if Red doesn't bounce back, he will be a cap casualty next year.

Edit: Oh and Jaye Howard wasn't there when Quinn was DC at University of Florida. Quinn DID, however, endorse Howard to the FO.

Edited again: I was mistaken, Quinn was Florida DC for Howard's last year there.

Does anyone know how Quinn is as a playcaller? Did he calls plays on D as a head coach last year?

Why would it faze the other guys? They worked with Quinn in 2011 (fulfilling the promote from within, albeit a year late) and they saw what he did at Florida as DC. I bet they're stoked to get him back. I know I am. (And I'm pretty astonished that it happened so soon, actually.)

THAT was the shortest trip on a band wagon I've ever had! I got up to drop a deuce and by the time I come back, Dan's the MAN!

Me likee! :spaz:

Makes me wonder if Dan and Gus really DID have a deal in place to swap houses... :hmmmm:

Love the pick-up. Makes the most sense. We basically do not skip a beat on defense except get some expertise along the defensive line - somewhere where we need it most.

That is a good thing for the #1 defense in the league.

What candidate are u worried about? Norton and Wash need to stay where they are because why mess with that success. And Kris Richard has never called plays. Other than administrative tasks, calling plays is the biggest task for a DC.

In a few years lets worry about upsetting the coaching pipeline. Until then, every assistant is thrilled to be padding their résumé with the Seahawks.

it wasn't just this year it was last as well. But i can see this as a very good at worst equal move.

If the draft goes well, I can seriously see Seattle vying for some defensive records next year. I don't think they'll get the scoring record (9.2 points is TOUGH), but I think they might approach the 10 mark (that'd be a significant 5ppg drop) which would be craaaazy awesome with our current offense.

Maybe they had a deal for Dan to the Jag's DC. Losing out on Quinn has to be Bradley's first disappointment on the job. That, and his first cursory look at the Jag's roster lol.

I signed off on this so it's okay. He will be a head coach in a few years and one of the youngins will get a shot then.

One other potential positive of hiring Dan Quinn - assuming Wash is hired by Bradley as DC (I am not a Wash fan), Quinn would likely bring Bryant Young from Florida as D-line coach

Nobody in house was qualified to be promoted to DC. Rocky Seto? Kris Richard? Please... Probably the only one even qualified was Todd Wash, but with the state of the D-line last year I don't think he deserved it. Nope, Dan is the absolute best choice for DC and I could give a rip if the other guys are butthurt. Just pushes them to do better so they get the job if/when Dan gets his own HC opportunity.

This is PERFECT! Quinn is a smart man and imho, a better DC than Gus. Dan is the one that suggested Red Bryant play DE and now that he has experience as a college DC, he is well prepared for the job as our DC!

Like Canhawk, I wanted Quinn over everyone. Plus, we once again have a coach that is familiar with college talent. And most importantly, with D-line talent, our biggest need! Woohoo!! :th2thumbs:

Excellent call Can. You've elevated yourself to Kip Earlywine level genius with this call.

It's amazing how plugged into this organization some 12's are. Seriously amazing.

Wouldn't now mind seeing Todd Wash going to Jax, and Quinn brings in his own guy to look over D Line.

No doubt. You can either coach the best defense in the league (one that you already had a hand in moulding BTW), or you can coach this steaming pile of dookie... but you get to hang out with your buddy Gus everyday!

Real tough decision...

I suspect Marinelli wants to go to a team with an offensive head coach so he can get all the credit for building a D. Not sure where Lovie Smith's former influence on the Bears D ends and where Marinelli's begins. He would live in PC's shadow here.

I would love to see lovie smith but he will probably keep looking for a head coach job.

yea the speed of this does make you wonder if Bradley was leaving whether he got another job or not? and fwiw Lovey said yesterday that he would not go back to being a coordinator.

One other potential positive of hiring Dan Quinn - assuming Wash is hired by Bradley as DC (I am not a Wash fan), Quinn would likely bring Bryant Young from Florida as D-line coach



haha, if Wash did go to Jacksonville the media might keep showing Wash during the games and saying it is Gus Bradley. The confusion will continue!

Regardless, I have high hopes for Quinn's abilities and feel it's a quality hire based solely on the merits of Quinn himself.


I haven't posted on this board in a thousand years, but here's what I have to say about this . . .

1. This is essentially a promotion from within. Quinn was with this team two years ago, was responsible for successfully implementing the Red Bryant experiment and turning Chris Clemons from a journeyman into a league leading pass rusher. He knows many of the players, all of the coaches, and has worked with Carroll in the past.

2. There is no one on the current staff with the experience or demeanor to take on the coordinator gig. Richard is too inexperienced, and Norton is probably a career position coach. His personality doesn't fit well with being a "big picture" type coach.

3. I have no doubt that Quinn, like Bradley, will be groomed by Carroll to eventually take over the whole team. That's the kind of coach he is and the kind of reputation he has. Carroll is the second oldest coach in the league. Quinn has future HC coach written all over him.

I love the fact that Carroll is continually surroundiung himself with young up and coming coaches instead of old old cronies and retreads that are too committed to twenty year old ideas to adjust to new scheme changes. I think Carroll's willingness to open himself up to new blood and new ideas will keep this team ahead of the NFL curve for a very long time.

That is EXACTLY what I was saying! Great post!

Have any of you considered the fact this now shows Seattle as a destination? We got a guy back from the University of Florida - one of the most football hungry places in the nation. This portends good things for the future.

Yup, name coaches are what dumb teams do, look at KC, get the next assistant that becomes the "hot" name guy first.

This sounds like a decent swap for us. I really hope Bevell doesn't go. I don't think changing both coordinators in one off-season is so great.

So if Bradley takes Wash with him to Jacksonville, it's likely guess that Bryant Young from UF would replace him. I think these moves will certainly improve our D.... Exciting stuff!!!

Good hire did a good job with Florida this year, knows the defense as well so won't lead to much upheaval if any.

On a side note I wonder if this increases the chances of us looking at some Florida defensive guys like Sharrif Floyd.
