Dan Quinn (Defensive Coordinator)

Dallas Cowboys Defensive Coordinator Dan Quinn's long-time support of service members, veterans and their families demonstrates the Salute to Service tenants to honor, empower and connect with those that preserve our freedoms. Quinn honors those who serve by donating his time to causes that aid the military community. Quinn's history of support stems from his personal interactions with those that dedicate their lives to service, from childhood friends to family members to chance encounters with veterans. While with the Seahawks, Quinn founded "Quinn's Corps" – a program to honor service members. While coaching the Falcons, Quinn expanded the program to include team United Service Organizations (USO) tours and game visits for Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). Now with the Cowboys, Quinn empowers the military community by being a voice of support and encouragement to veterans and active-duty service members. Quinn frequently engages with Merging Vets and Players (MVP) and joins the team in hosting workouts and mental health discussions with local veterans that address the challenges that combat veterans and former athletes face in transition. The connection that Quinn is forming with local military partners carries over into his day-to-day coaching role. In May 2022, Quinn joined General Paul E. Funk II, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command for a Leader Professional Development webinar. During the session, Quinn spoke about staying resilient through adversity and developing a unified squad while working with people of different backgrounds and experiences.
