Browns bypass Seahawks DC Quinn as head coach

The Cleveland Browns' selection of Mike Pettine as their head coach, closed the door on the candidacy of Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

"I had a good visit with them, and a lot of respect certainly for their organization … and I also had a good visit with the guys at Minnesota," he said. "… Both those guys hired some great coaches. It was a great experience to go through, and then even more importantly having the support of (executive VP and general manger John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll) to have a chance to be so supportive of that, I don’t think I could be more fortunate to have better bosses than those two. To have that kind of support from those guys – to have them in your corner – I couldn’t be more fired up."
