Report: Cowboys DC Dan Quinn scheduled to interview with Broncos on Friday

The Cowboys hope they’ll be spending the week recuperating (quickly) from a wild-card win over Tampa Bay and then prepping (quickly) for a trip to San Francisco to play the 49ers in the NFC divisional round.

If that comes to pass, Dallas defensive coordinator Dan Quinn might be adding an extra bit of business to an already-short week.

Mike Klis of Denver’s KUSA-TV and NFL insider Adam Schefter are both reporting that Quinn is set to interview in person for the Broncos’ head coaching vacancy on Friday.

The club has already spoken virtually with University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, as well as face-to-face with former Colts and Lions head coach Jim Caldwell, former Stanford head coach David Shaw, and current Denver defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero.

Now the Broncos have four more interviews on the schedule for this week: Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris and ex-Saints head coach Sean Payton on Tuesday, 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans on Thursday, and then Quinn to close out the work week.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport claimed over the weekend that Harbaugh, Payton, and Quinn appear to be the “three main candidates” for the job.

Should the Cowboys beat Tampa Bay in the wild-card round Monday night, they will face the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. on Sunday evening, with Quinn’s interview taking place less than 72 hours before kickoff.

Quinn was said to have been a finalist for the Broncos’ head coaching position last year; Denver chose to hire Nathaniel Hackett, while Quinn returned to Dallas for a second year as defensive coordinator.
