A lot of us wanted him, no? Good choice, I think, but I don't know enough about him to form a critical opinion yet.

Awesome if true. Really the only sensible choice.

Watch this defense light up next season.

Good. I'm glad they announced it basically right away, so it doesn't look like they were debating who it would be.

Awesome! That was uhh, quick. Great to get him back though, D-line expertise and I think it's good from a teaching aspect to get a coach who's recently been in the college ranks. Plus he knows college prospects right now. Has some connections.


Future head coach to boot.

They must've been banking on Bradley leaving, I'm guessing, cuz that was stupidly fast, haha.

Smart move for everyone involved, Quinn knows that the personnel is good here, he has cred for Florida's D in the SEC, a few good years in Seattle and he will have a sweet choice for head coach somewhere. Seattle doesn't have to alter the rest of the defense or reshuffle the coaching assistants too much and gets a good candidate to take over.

Works for me.

They crapped the bed in the bowl game, but he had that gator defense playing some very good football last year, well above what was expected from the unit.

This is the perfect signing IMO. He knows our team/scheme and is a great DL coach. We should see great improvement in that area. PC's speciality is the secondary so hopefully this means we get back to jamming the hell out of wide receivers at the line and getting some serious pressure with blitzes.

What he did in Florida defensively is also impressive being in the SEC against a lot of good running teams.

it's like Pete knew they were getting rid of him either way and had Dan Quinn anyway.
I would love to see lovie smith but he will probably keep looking for a head coach job.

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.

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.

Quick replacement
Someone familiar with the team, the HC, the GM, and some of the players
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.

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.


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.

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:


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.
