RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Seattle has moved quickly to hire Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to the same position with the Seahawks.
Seattle made the move on Thursday morning just hours after Gus Bradley left the Seahawks to become the head coach in Jacksonville.
Quinn returns to Seattle after two seasons with the Gators. He was the defensive line coach for Seattle in 2009 and 2010 before leaving for the college ranks and the chance to be a coordinator. At Florida, Quinn's units ranked eighth nationally in total defense in 2011 and fifth in 2012. The Gators allowed just 286.7 yards and 14.5 points per game last season.
Quinn previously worked in the NFL as a defensive line coach in San Francisco, Miami and with the New York Jets.
BEST OF MAXIM
Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks followed their come-from-behind win against the Washington Redskins in dramatically painful fashion. Against the Atlanta Falcons, they dug a 20-0 hole in the first half, but clawed back to take a 28-27 lead with a half-minute left. Or did they?
For a few surreal moments, I wondered if Marshawn Lynch had scored or fumbled at the goal-line. Did...

Chancellor and defensive end Chris Clemons underwent surgery yesterday to help
repair injuries sustained during the year, according to Curtis Crabtree of Pro
Chancellor’s surgery was for an undisclosed injury in his

Philadelphia fans are getting more than restless, as other team are plucking their coaching choices, the Eagles seems to be glossing over everybody. The latest prospect to come in was Gus Bradley, defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks.
This was his second interview and many thought the Eagles had their guy. However, Bradley left town with no agreement, and thus to search...
Before Russell Wilson came out of nowhere, Matt Flynn was supposed to be the Seahawks' starting quarterback. Before the season started, however, it was Wilson, not Flynn that was named the Seahawks' starting quarterback, and it was without question the right move. Now, however, the Seahawks have a very expensive backup quarterback that could be trade ammunition in the offseason...
This story shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone who watched Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson play this year. After a regular season that saw him throw 26 touchdown passes while leading Seattle to an 11-5 record, Wilson led the Seahawks to a playoff win at Washington and was a couple of Matt Ryan passes away from having his team in the NFC Title Game on Sunday...
Where it all went wrong for Seattle against Atlanta
Alright Seattle Seahawks fans, it’s time to step back from the ledge and do what we do best; point the finger at who cost us a shot at Lombardi’s trophy.
And for this, we have to start at the top—head coach Pete Carroll.
Yes, it’s true that the Hawks fared far better than pre-season expectations. And yes, it’s true that...
The Seattle Seahawks hired defensive line coach Dan Quinn to defensive coordinator, the team announced Thursday. Quinn replaces Gus Bradley, who was named the Jacksonville Jaguars head coach. Quinn spent the past two seasons as the University of Florida's defensive coordinator. Prior to that, he coached the Seahawks' defensive line and was assistant head coach for two...
Both coordinators for the Seahawks, Gus Bradley and Darrell Bevell, have been cashing in on the team's success the last few weeks by interviewing for multiple head coaching vacancies across the league. But while it appears likely that Bevell will stay on for the 2013 season, earlier today it was announced that Bradley has been hired by the Jacksonville Jaguars to be their new...
Back to Seattle
The past week in the sports world has been crazy. From Chip Kelly heading to the Philadelphia Eagles to Manti Te’o's fake girlfriend to Lance Armstrong admitting that he used performance enhancing drugs, there has been plenty of stories for sports writers to write about.
One story close to the heart of every Seattle Seahawks fan, a team that recently saw their...
The idea was to eliminate a transition. Florida head coach Will Muschamp moved fast enough to avoid one. When former defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was announced as the new defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday afternoon, Muschamp didn’t drag his feet. In just over an hour, his decision to promote linebackers coach D.J. Durkin was official. It was a part of the plan.
