The Denver Broncos have requested permission from the Dallas Cowboys to interview Dan Quinn – again – for their head coaching vacancy, NFL Network and 9News reported Monday.

Quinn was a finalist for the vacancy last year before the team opted to hire Nathaniel Hackett, since fired after starting 4-11.

Senior assistant Jerry Rosburg finished out the season as interim head coach.

The Broncos won’t be able to talk to Quinn until after the Cowboys’ playoff game next Monday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Broncos also requested to interview former Saints coach Sean Payton. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and Broncos defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero are also considered candidates for the post.

Quinn went 43-42 as head coach of the Atlanta Falcons from 2015-20, going 3-2 in the playoffs and taking the team to Super Bowl LI. He was fired after an 0-5 start to the 2020 season.
