To those he worked with prior to his arrival in Atlanta, Dan Quinn is more than just
a football coach.
He’s a leader, a teacher and someone who respects those around him enough
to let them inform his decision making. Those who have spent time working with
him still hold Quinn in high regard, as was apparent during this year’s Pro Bowl.
Generally, when a member of the media approaches a player or a coach he or
she is met with a cautious façade. But at the mention of Quinn’s name, a smile
crept across the faces of Bobby Wagner, Kris Richard and Gus Bradley. That cautious
façade replaced by a willingness to talk about a man they respect.
