New York Giants (2006-2017)Edit

Quinn was hired by the Giants to serve as their assistant special teams coach under Mike Sweatman for the 2006 season. After one season, he was promoted to special teams coach. In 2007, Lawrence Tynes kicked a game-winning 47 yard field goal in overtime to send the Giants to Super Bowl XLII, as they defeated the Green Bay Packers 23-20. In 2011, Tynes again kicked a game-winning field goal in overtime, as his 31-yard kick sent the Giants to Super Bowl XLVI, as they defeated the San Francisco 49ers. During his tenure as special teams coach, the Giants have seen mixed results. His first season saw the Giants rank 11th in special teams. Since then, they have ranked near the middle or bottom of the league in each season.[2]

After the 2017 season, new head coach Pat Shurmur relieved Quinn of his coaching duties.
