Gators DC Dan Quinn reportedly turned down Bucs

While Will Muschamp has already “lost” his offensive coordinator this offseason, it doesn’t appear that will be the case on the defensive side of the ball.

In recent days, there has been speculation bubbling just below the surface that defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was possibly leaving Florida for a job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The Gainesville Sun, however, reported Monday that Quinn has turned down the opportunity with the Bucs and will instead remain with the Gators.

The Sun reports that Quinn had interviewed with Greg Schiano for the coordinator job in Tampa.

In Quinn’s first season at UF last year, the Gators finished eight in total defense and 20th in scoring defense.

    Not the first or last. Bucs organization is messed up from the top down. And I’m a fan, or maybe was since we will not see any games on TV again this year and I will only attend a couple, maybe

    Schiano better start hiring some experienced NFL’ers or he faces the prospect of pulling a Spurrier.

    Do you watch football or are you too stupid to understand what you are watching?

    Quinn’s D had ZERO to do with the LOSS to the Noles. Most people consider it a successful day when your D holds the opposition’s O to less than 100 total years. Usually, that results in a win, unless your QBs toss 4 picks…glad that the twinkie shortage in Gainesville has come to an end. Word is that Kansas is suffering from a similar shortage.

    It is difficult when your opponents 2 scoring drives start on the 20 and the 4, with the other TD coming via pick 6.

    Yeah, but “Quinn likes getting raped by the seminoles too much to leave”. Every fan base has a few stupid fans whose respective IQ could be displayed on the back of a QB’s jersey, but you are clearly special.
