The Indianapolis Colts completed their head coach interview with Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, the team announced Friday.
This marks the 11th head coach interview the Colts have completed since the end of the regular season. They also are scheduled to interview San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans and both New York Giants coordinators Mike Kafka and Wink Martindale this weekend.

Quinn has been coaching in the NFL for the majority of the last 20 years. He had a two-year stint (2011-2012) when he went to be the defensive coordinator and defensive line coach of the Florida Gators.
After spending six seasons coaching in college, Quinn got his start in the NFL with the San Francisco as a defensive quality control coach for two seasons (2001-2002). He then was promoted to defensive line coach for two more seasons (2003-2004) before holding the same role with the Miami Dolphins (2005-2006) and New York Jets (2007-2008).
Quinn then made his way to Seattle, where he was the assistant head coach and defensive line coach for the Seahawks (2009-2010) before his stint at Florida.
He returned to the NFL with the Seahawks as the defensive coordinator for two seasons (2013-2014) before getting the head coach job with the Atlanta Falcons, a role he held for five and a half seasons (2015-2020).
In his second season as a head coach, Quinn led the Falcons to Super Bowl LI but infamously blew the largest lead in Super Bowl history after being up 28-3 in the third quarter over the New England Patriots.
Quinn was fired midseason by the Falcons during the 2020 campaign and promptly joined the Cowboys as the defensive coordinator under Mike McCarthy, a role he’s held since 2021.
The head coaching search will be led by general manager Chris Ballard, but the decision ultimately resides with owner Jim Irsay.
