The Denver Broncos are going to have a long offseason once again after Nathaniel Hackett got fired and the Broncos won just five games this season.
A flurry of names has popped up in rumors for the Broncos opening, with Jim Harbaugh being one of them once again.
Some reports have shown that the next head coach will have to find a way to work with Russell Wilson, which makes sense since he was given a giant five-year, $242 million contract just a year ago.
With a ton of names floating around, Wilson made sure to voice his support for one coach that interviewed with the Broncos last year — and one Wilson has a lot of familiarity with.
I asked Russell Wilson about the coaching search last night, specifically about Sean Payton and Jim Harbaugh.
Wilson made sure to mention Quinn:

“I asked Russell Wilson about the coaching search last night, specifically about Sean Payton and Jim Harbaugh. Wilson made sure to mention Quinn: ‘Dan Quinn, I know him personally, too. He’s an amazing coach as well, an amazing person, an amazing soul, great leader,’” George Stoia III tweeted.
Quinn interviewed with the Broncos last year before going back to his role as defensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys.
This time around, he should be a favorite for the Broncos job again, and even more after Wilson gave him a strong vote of support.
The coaching cycle is just getting started in the NFL, and there are five openings across the league, with more possibly coming up in the next few days.
The Broncos might be better of listening to Wilson’s request and giving him a shot with Quinn.
