Quinn began his career in League football at Motherwell under the management of Bobby Ancell where he would play alongside other "Ancell's Babes" such as Ian St. John. Quinn would establish himself as a scheming inside-forward before moving to Blackpool in 1962. A year later, he would return to Scotland to join Hibernian and would be a key component of the team's midfield under Jock Stein and Bob Shankly. He finished his league career at East Fife, whom he would also manage. He also coached FH.
Quinn played four times for Scotland, scoring one goal. This goal was but small consolation as Scotland were thrashed 9–3 by old rivals England at Wembley in a 1961 British Home Championship match. Quinn also represented the Scottish League XI six times.
