The Atlanta Falcons’ Dan Quinn was asked by reporters on Monday if the team’s new coach will be a “better coach” than the one he was hired to replace.
Quinn was asked whether he thought he could get the Falcons to compete with the teams in the NFC South for the NFC North title.
Quint is currently the longest-tenured coach in the NFL.
He was named the Falcons’ new head coach after a 5-11 season in 2016 that saw the Falcons lose three of their final four games.
Quinsey told reporters the team was “a little disappointed” in the lack of success.
“The year before I was a pretty good head coach,” Quinn said.
“It took us three years to be good.”
Quinn’s record against teams in his second year as a head coach is 8-7.
He was named NFC Coach of the Week for Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints in December.
Quins first two NFL seasons as a coach were both in Atlanta.
He won the Super Bowl in his first season with the Falcons in 2007.
The Falcons won a Super Bowl two years later in 2008.
Quiz said that he believes his coaching style is the best.
“I think I have a unique ability to motivate people to go out and be good,” Quinn told reporters.
“I’ve been able to motivate guys to play a little bit better.
I think I am the most effective recruiter that you will ever see.”
