Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has informed teams he's staying put despite generating six head coaching interview requests, sources told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Quinn went into the hiring cycle as a hot candidate after a reinvigorating year with the Cowboys. The 51-year-old previously served as head coach for the Atlanta Falcons, making an appearance in Super Bowl LI as part of his six-season tenure.

He was apparently a finalist for the head coaching jobs in Denver and Chicago, but the Broncos and Bears reportedly hired Nathaniel Hackett and Matt Eberflus, respectively.

The Cowboys will welcome back Quinn for a second season after he helped them post the NFL's No. 7 scoring defense in 2021. Dallas ranked 19th in yards allowed. The team ranked 28th in points and 23rd in yards under Mike Nolan in 2020.
