Team USA Olympic bobsledder Johnny Quinn to train with SWAT team

Fourth-Place Medal

The post-Olympic offers have trickled in for American bobsledder Johnny Quinn.

Not long after the world learned about Quinn's talent for breaking through jammed hotel bathroom doors, the Denton (Texas) Police Department extended the 30-year-old an invitation to join the SWAT team once he returns from Sochi.

Officer Ryan Grelle, who handles media relations for the department, said he received a reply from Quinn's agent that the University of North Texas alumnus has accepted the offer to come in for one of its training dates.

Quinn's profile has skyrocketed since the incident. The former NFL and Canadian Football League player now has more than 25,800 Twitter followers, up from the 14,751 followers he had the day before tweeting out a photo of the mangled bathroom door.

Quinn became a buzzworthy topic once again when he found himself trapped inside an elevator. He will finally get the chance to make headlines on the ice track in the four-man bobsled competition.

Let's hope his teammates can keep him from having to perform another #SochiJailBreak before then.
