The Seahawks have named Dan Quinn as their defensive coordinator.
Quinn, the team’s defensive line coach in 2009-10, replaces Gus Bradley, who was named head coach of the Jaguars today. Quinn spent the past two seasons as the defensive coordinator at the University of Florida.
Quinn was the defensive line coach with the 49ers (2003-04), Dolphins (2005-06) and Jets (2007-08) before joining the Seahawks in 2009, when he also held the title of assistant head coach on Jim Mora’s staff. Quinn was retained after Pete Carroll became the head coach in 2010, so he is familiar with the Seahawks’ defensive scheme.
