The Dallas Cowboys have had a very good defense each of the past two seasons.
One big reason for their success has been defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.
The rest of the league has also noticed the job Quinn has done in Dallas.
That is why he is one of the hot commodities for teams searching for their next head coach.
Quinn interviewed with a few different teams last season before deciding to stay in Dallas.
Well, he will be conducting those head coaching interviews again over the next few weeks.
Quite the closing argument for Dan Quinn ahead of his next round of coaching interviews. Nights like this, and seasons like last, should give him the chance to pick his next destination.

One team that has shown the most interest in Quinn is the Denver Broncos.
After a failed coaching experiment in Denver this season, they are once again in the head coaching market.
The Broncos have already requested another interview with Quinn, as have the Indianapolis Colts.
Quinn has led this Cowboys defense to a place where no one has been since 1972-74.
That is leading the NFL in takeaways in back-to-back seasons.
Usually, when a team has a great coordinator, they do not stay very long.
That seems to be the case with Quinn this offseason.
But, for now, the Cowboys’ defense will have their hands full trying to stop the San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers have won 11 straight games, and their rookie QB Brock Purdy has yet to lose.
Quinn will be in a chess match all game with his former assistant Kyle Shanahan.
Those two coached together when Quinn was the head coach in Atlanta.
Last year, the 49ers knocked the Cowboys out of the playoffs in the Wild Card round.
So, Dallas comes into this game with some added motivation.
Look for Quinn to put together another great game plan to put his players in the best position to succeed.
He may not be in Dallas after this season, so he needs to make all of these games count.
