During that span, Quinn oversaw the NFL's top defensive unit as Seattle led the League allowing 270.4 yards per game, 15.2 points per game, and 178.8 passing yards per game while holding opponents to 91.6 rushing yards per game.
In 2014, Quinn's defense led the NFL in scoring defense (15.9), total defense (267.1), and passing yards (185.6), while ranking third in rushing yards (81.5). The Seahawks also boasted the League's top defensive unit in 2013, en route to a win over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

In, 2008 the Jets defense ranked fifth in the NFL in yards per carry (3.7), seventh in sacks (41), and ninth in rushing yards per game (94.9). The Jets were also sixth in the AFC in yards per play (5.2) and third-down defense (38.6).

He began his NFL coaching career in San Francisco as its defensive assistant in 2001 before moving on to coach the 49ers defensive line from 2003-2004. Quinn got his start coaching the defensive line at William and Mary in 1994, followed by a season at Virginia Military Institute. He held the same position with Hofstra for four seasons before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2000.
