Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday that defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, a candidate for several head coaching jobs, would instead remain in Dallas for “years to come."
Quinn, the former head coach of the Atlanta Falcons who just completed his first season as the Cowboys DC, had interviewed with the Denver Broncos, New York Giants, Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings.
EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings completed head coach interviews Wednesday with the two top assistants for the Dallas Cowboys: offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have added Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris to their candidate list for head coach.
According to a person with knowledge of the process, speaking Tuesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the organization is not announcing interviews before they're completed, the Vikings have requested a virtual meeting with Morris about the vacancy created when Mike Zimmer was fired last week.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Mike McCarthy's future as Dallas Cowboys coach wasn't something Jerry Jones wanted to discuss after a wild-card loss that left the owner saying “I can't remember” when asked if he'd ever been more disappointed in defeat.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have begun the search for a new coach by seeking interviews with an initial slate of seven candidates, including Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
Kyle Shanahan and Dan Quinn will always share the painful memory of coaching in the Super Bowl together with Atlanta five years ago when the Falcons couldn't hold a 25-point lead in the second half of a loss to New England.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars lined up eight interviews for their head coaching vacancy Tuesday, including five coordinators who are headed to the playoffs.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas defensive coordinator Dan Quinn dodged questions about facing the Atlanta Falcons for the first time since getting fired as their coach last year by stating the obvious several times.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys placed kicker Greg Zuerlein on the COVID-19 reserve list Tuesday, likely meaning they’ll have to sign a replacement before playing Atlanta.
Zuerlein is the first Dallas player to enter healthy and safety protocols since late September.
THE COLONY, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys safety Damontae Kazee was arrested early Tuesday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in a Dallas suburb, police said.

ATLANTA (AP) — Call this the Rebuilding Bowl.
When the Atlanta Falcons open the season Sunday hosting the Philadelphia Eagles, it will be a matchup of rookie coaches leading the two worst teams in the NFC from a year ago.
DALLAS COWBOYS (6-10)
New faces: LB Micah Parsons, LB Keanu Neal, DT Osa Odighizuwa, S Damontae Kazee, CB Kelvin Joseph, CB Nahshon Wright, DT Carlos Watkins, S Jayron Kearse, DT Brett Urban.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and defensive tackle Carlos Watkins were sent home because of COVID-19 protocols before a preseason game against Houston on Saturday night.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn isn't the only significant new piece for a Dallas defense that was among the worst in franchise history last year.
