Only four teams remain in the NFL playoffs, so teams searching for a new head coach can hold second, in-person interviews this week with candidates from the 28 eliminated teams.
However, the Commanders can interview other candidates this week. On Monday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported the Commanders will interview Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn for a second time.

Quinn has spent the past three seasons as Dallas’ defensive coordinator, and the Cowboys are routinely among the league leaders in sacks and turnovers. Quinn was head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 2015-20.
Quinn isn’t the only active defensive coordinator who will interview with Washington for a second time this week. The Commanders will also bring in Rams DC Raheem Morris for a second interview.
Rams’ defensive coordinator Raheem Morris is scheduling second in-person head-coaching interviews with the Falcons, Panthers, Commanders and Seahawks, per sources.

Morris has been the Rams’ defensive coordinator since 2021 but has plenty of NFL experience, including three seasons as Washington’s defensive backs coach from 2012-14. Morris is also a former head coach, guiding the Buccaneers from 2009-11.
Quinn and Morris will be busy this week, with second in-person interviews slated with multiple teams.
