Pete Quinn is no longer a Cowboys coach and, as a result, is no closer to being named the next head coach of the Dallas Mavericks.
The franchise’s current owner, Mark Cuban, who purchased the team from Stan Kroenke in 2011, did not publicly announce Quinn’s hiring, but the news was reported Wednesday by Fox Sports’ Pete Quill.
Quinn will have the chance to interview for the head-coaching position with the Mavericks at a news conference on Friday.
Quinn has been a coach at both Oklahoma State University and Oklahoma City University, and he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Houston.
He was also an assistant coach at Arizona State and the Arizona Cardinals.
He joined the NFL as an offensive coordinator with the Oakland Raiders in the 1996 season.
Quinn was a wide receivers coach with the New York Jets from 2002-06, and was an offensive line coach for the Houston Oilers in 2006.
He spent five seasons in the NFL with the Washington Redskins, New England Patriots, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars.
He served as an assistant head coach with New England from 2002 to 2006, and in 2014 was named the assistant head football coach for defensive backs coach for New England’s football operations.
