Thursday January 17, 2013 Quinn plans to keep close eye on Gators

Updated: 6:01pm, January 17

As you probably know by now Gators defensive coordinator Dan Quinn accepted an offer from Seattle to be the Seahawks' new defensive coordinator.

Dan Quinn

Quinn joined Gators head coach Will Muschamp's inaugural staff two years ago and helped build the Gators' defense into one of the best the past two seasons.

Quinn is also a stand-up guy, one of my favorite coaches at UF to deal with in any sport.

Hope to catch up with him before he heads back to Seattle, where he was defensive line coach for two seasons prior to joining the Gators.

For now, here is a quote from Quinn on his time at UF courtesy of Florida football SID Dan Apple:

"My wife Stacey and I loved our time in Gainesville,'' Quinn said. "The last two years have been an awesome experience, working for Will and Mr. Foley and with a bunch of talented, great players and coaches. Even though we'll be in Seattle, we look forward to keeping track of the Gators in the future."

Gators linebackers/special-teams coordinator D.J. Durkin will replace Quinn as defensive coordinator.
