  • Quinn coaching Atlanta

    ESPN says Quinn has agreed to terms to coach Atlanta. Looks like we were just too late for him.

    He can't take a job until his season is over.

      .

      Apparently there's a rule that allowed the Falcons to interview him a second time since they interviewed him during the bye week. If that's the case, he might be allowed to agree to terms.

        Any links? It's not showing up for me on ESPN

        The only thing I can think of is maybe a verbal agreement. I'm pretty sure he can't officially agree to terms until the Seahawks are done

          He can't have a second interview until after the game this week, while he can't officially accept the position he can pretty much agree to terms. If you'll recall several years ago Charlie Weiss had already accepted the HC job at Notre Dame and everyone knew that Romeo Crennel was going to the Browns as the Patriots were getting ready for the Super Bowl.

            I don't see it at ESPN and nothing on this with Lombardi, Darlington, Schefter nor Rapoport.

              You won't see anything until next week, Atlanta can't do anything with him until then and really do you want to be seen as a team getting in the way of a Super Bowl run? Unlike the Broncos not pursuing the tampering charges against the Bears I don't think the Seahawks would be as kind if they found out their DC was busy talking to Atlanta instead of preparing for the NFC CG.

                In addition to what I just said that's when the Broncos will get a good read on Quinn, he'll meet with Atlanta at which point the Broncos can call his agent, he'll be able to tell them if they should wait to interview Quinn or if they should scratch him from the list and focus on other candidates. If the agent says that Quinn is interested then I could see the Broncos waiting unless one of the other candidates blows them away.

                Of course all of this assumes the Seahawks win on Sunday.

                  I read ya, and that's how I understood the restrictions too. The closest thing I could find was this musing from VL:

                  Vic Lombardi @VicLombardi · 2h 2 hours ago
                  Seems odd for Atlanta to bring Gase in to interview for OC job, unless they have an HC already pegged.

                  Something like this on a ESPN blog may have been misconstrued into 'news'.

                    I think it would improve the NFL to have everyone not interview current active coaches until after the super bowl...just my thought. I originally saw a blip on msm about Quinn and Atlanta.

                      It could be that they've already settled on him but that would be odd without at least having a second interview. But yeah looking at OC candidates unless they have a HC lined up would be a quick way for a disconnect on the coaching staff because the HC doesn't have his guy.

                        That's the way I feel. And I think it is most unfair that second interviews are allowed but not first. ANY interview is going to distract.

                          The current system does work against the coordinators of the Super Bowl teams, especially if they play Wild Card week and their coaches essentially can't interview for any positions until after the season.

                            NFL network says Teryl is interviewing for a second time.
