Dan Quinn ranks 11th on NFL head coach power rankings

After transforming an 8-8 team to 2016 NFC Champions, Dan Quinn landed the No. 11 spot on NFL.com’s head coach power rankings.

NFL.com analyst Elliott Harrison raked all 32 NFL head coaches, analyzing each coach’s wins, impact, situation, experience and their immediate future.

Harrison wrote Quinn proved himself during his second season with the Falcons.

"One year after a debut that showed promise (with an admittedly sluggish finish), Quinn pushed his team to the Super Bowl... The Falcons drafted speedy linebackers and one physical safety to pursue a brand of defense similar to what Quinn ran in Seattle,” Harrison wrote. “Throw in heavy use of running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, and this Atlanta team will be challenging the Seahawks and any other comers in the NFC for awhile.”
