Dan Quinn didn’t serve in the military, but he understands very well the importance of building ,
a cohesive team and staying resilient in the face of adversity,
something the men and women of the armed forces are asked to do every day, under far more challenging circumstances.
The Cowboys defensive coordinator has been a longtime supporter of service members,
veterans, and their families throughout his coaching career.
And now Quinn has been named this year’s nominee by the team for the USAA Salute to Service Award.
The annual award is meant to honor a player, coach, staff member,
or alumni who has demonstrated a commitment to “honor, empower, and connect with those that preserve our freedoms.”
We're proud to recognize Dan Quinn as our 2022 #SaluteToService Award nominee
for his long-time support of service members, veterans, and their families.
Quinn is a previous winner of the award, having received the accolade in 2016 as head coach of the Falcons.
In Seattle, he founded Quinn’s Corps, a program that honors military service members.
Since arriving in Dallas, he’s taken part in events put on by Merging Vets and Players (MVP),
hosting workouts and mental health discussions with local veterans at the Cowboys’ facilities in Frisco.
