Commanders coach Dan Quinn was a bouncer in college

If you looked across the NFL at every head coach and guessed which one was a bouncer in a previous life, which coach would you name?

If you said Washington Commanders head coach Dan Quinn, you’d be correct. In an interview with JP Finlay of NBC Washington at this week’s NFL Annual League Meeting, Quinn discussed his hectic first 50+ days on the job, including going from evaluating his new roster to free agency.

Now, Quinn and general manager Adam Peters are in full draft evaluation mode.

While Finlay kept it mostly serious with Quinn, he did ask him about attending college at Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland, about 30 minutes from one of the East Coast’s most popular vacation spots, Ocean City.

Quinn acknowledged he had a lot of fun during his college days, where he was so good that he ended up in the school’s Hall of Fame. He said Ocean City was a lot of fun and a place where he had some cool summer jobs, one of which included being a bouncer.

Quinn noted he was a bouncer at more than one local bar, to which Finlay replied:

“If you were the bouncer, I would have behaved,” Finlay joked.

Quinn’s reply: “They didn’t.”

In looking back at Quinn’s time as a player at Salisbury, there is this legendary photo.

Quinn certainly looked the part of a bouncer — or pro wrestler.
