Commanders fill the last spot of Dan Quinn’s initial coaching staff

Dan Quinn wanted one final coach, and he got him on Tuesday.

The Commanders head coach, in his first season, has added what the team announced is the last coach for this inaugural season of Quinn’s in Washington.

After serving as the Seahawks linebacker coach since 2018, Glenn now becomes a Commanders coach for Quinn, serving as the assistant special teams coach. Quinn leaves Seattle as one of 14 members of Pete Carroll’s 2023 staff who have relocated to other NFL teams. Carroll was fired after the completion of the 2023 season.

The connection here is that Quinn was the Seahawks defensive coordinator during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Glenn was employed by the Seahawks as well during those seasons, getting started in Seattle in 2012.

Also on that Seahawks staff those two seasons under Quinn was Ken Norton Jr, the linebackers coach. Norton has joined Quinn in Washington and will be the Commanders linebackers coach.

Also joining Quinn from Seattle is Larry Izzo who had served as the Seahawks Special Teams Coordinator during the 2018-2023 NFL seasons.

Spending his last 12 NFL seasons on the Pete Carroll Seahawks staff, Glenn also coached in the state of Washington with the Huskies as a quality control coach in 2010 and 2011. Prior to the University of Washington, Glenn was a linebackers coach for North Carolina Wesleyan College from 2006-08.

Glenn is married to his wife, Leigh, and they have three sons: Nate, Luke, and Will.
