Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn official to the Seahawks

NEW: Follow on facebook -

Gators’ defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is leaving Gainesville to be the next defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks’ former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley just became the new head coach at Jacksonville.

Quinn has been in Gainesville the last two years with Will Muschamp, but he coached in Seattle before coming to Gainesville.

However, with Will Muschamp as the head coach, Florida shouldn’t worry too much, because he ultimately controls what happens on the defense and will hire a solid coordinator.

That makes two offensive coordinators and two defensive coordinators for Muschamp in just his second year.

The bigger questions regarding Florida losing Quinn is 1. Does he take Bryant Young with him and 2. What type of effect will this have on recruiting?
