Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as Dan Quinn's head coaching appointment became official?
There is no going back for the Washington Commanders after they confirmed Dan Quinn as their next head coach. This was seen as the genuine leader of men those in power were looking for, even if the hire was underwhelming to some fans who wanted a young, progressive offensive mind to assist in their quest to emerge from obscurity and into contention.
It'll be interesting to see what unfolds in the days, weeks, and months ahead as the Commanders look to lay the foundations for a more profitable future. Until then, the stories causing debate include Quinn's ambition, Josh Harris' delight, Adam Peters' reasoning, and Kliff Kingsbury rumored to be a leading contender for the offensive coordinator job.
Let's delve into each topic in more detail.
Kliff Kingsbury linked with Commanders OC job
One of the first objectives for Dan Quinn is to hire a coaching staff capable of helping reach a common goal. The former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator is expected to lure some of his old staff in time. He's also using his vast connections around the game to get the best team possible.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Washington Commanders recently interviewed Kliff Kingsbury for the offensive coordinator position. He was set to take the same vacancy with the Las Vegas Raiders until a late change of heart. Something that could indicate the interest is mutual.
Rapoport added there are more people to interview and Eric Bieniemy hasn't been completely removed from the equation either. Of course, there's also the added caveat of Kingsbury's work alongside quarterback Caleb Williams at USC last season. If he gets the Commanders' play-calling gig, speculation will rise about the prospect of bringing the gunslinging prospect on board either at No. 2 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft or via a bombshell trade.
