Is Dan Quinn truly the favorite to be the Denver Broncos new coach?
As the head coaching search rolls on for the Denver Broncos, Dan Quinn seems to be the favorite, but is that truly the way this search is going?
Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn appears to be the favorite for the Denver Broncos vacant head coaching position.
This should come as no surprise, as Quinn is the most accomplished and veteran coach that the team is interviewing.
Quinn has had success as both a coordinator and head coach, and history would tell us that coaches do better as head coaches in their second stint than their first.
Well, Dan Quinn had a winning record and went to a Super Bowl during his first stint as head coach, so if his second stint is better, what could that mean?
However, we’ve been given every indication that Quinn is the favorite from national media figures and more Denver-based people, but this would go against what George Paton has done thus far as head coach.
Twitter user XanB21 made a very smart observation, as he notes that George Paton has been mostly tight-lipped in his short time in Denver.
There hasn’t been a lot of ‘leaks’ coming from the Broncos’ front office. In his tweet, he used the example of the Broncos seemingly not having any interest in Patrick Surtain II before the draft.
Obviously, the Denver Broncos selected Surtain II in the draft, which sent many shocks throughout Broncos Country.
George Paton even went in front of a microphone before the draft and had said that the team would not be taking a wide receiver or cornerback in the first round.
The overarching point here is that George Paton seems to be one who keeps his business to himself and his close staff, so it’s odd that so many are thinking Dan Quinn is the candidate for the Broncos’ head coaching position.
Maybe this is all a ploy by George Paton to get another team to hire Quinn and ultimately hire someone who he really covets.
Denver Broncos 2022 mock draft any head coach will love
The Denver Broncos don't have a head coach yet, but this is a 2022 mock draft scenario that any prospective head coach candidate will love.
George Paton is very good at his job, so I would not be surprised if this was the case.
We will all see soon.
