Okay, here is my contribution...
Dan Quinn is currently the defensive coordinator for Pete Carroll and the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. He’s known for being flexible with scheme and looking for ways to feature the talents of his best players. Interestingly, in a 2013 article on NFL.com, Quinn and two other NFL assistants (Mel Tucker and Greg Roman) were named by anonymous NFL executives as being the most likely NFL assistants to make great college coaches.
PROBLEM IS... Quinn is one of the most highly-regarded assistants in the NFL right now, and was apparently a top candidate for the Cleveland Browns job last off-season (but the Browns hired a different coach while the Seahawks were still playing en route to the Super Bowl). He was also a finalist for the Minnesota Vikings job and reportedly considered for other NFL vacancies as well.

Other coaches he has worked for/with include:
· Kyle Flood (with Hoftsra)
· Nick Saban (with Miami Dolphins)
· Pete Carroll (with Seattle Seahawks)
· Will Muschamp (with Florida Gators)
· Recent major college experience as DC with Florida
· Super Bowl ring
· Flexible and acquainted with modern schemes
· May be difficult to sign (or keep for long), given demand from NFL teams
· No HC experience at any level
Once again, not exactly the finest PR day for Michigan.
Don't click. You know what I mean when I say don't click. (Trey's naked selfies are now everywhere on Twitter.)
Damnit, this is the worst Michigan day ever.
Days left until something really good happens.
Along with Thabeet,Lorenzo Brown and Josh Bostic. Running a Blog and professional basketball has to keep Brian pretty busy. Good luck on getting a roster spot!
Rated as the #71 player in the country to Rivals. Should make for some fun storylines over the next few years since McQuaid was being recruited pretty heavily by Michigan for a while. There seemed to be significant mutual interest, however, Beilein cooled on him for some reason (before Duncan Robinson was on the radar) and other schools, including MSU, came into the picture. McQuaid had previously decommitted from SMU.
McQuaid's dad, Rob, grew up in Midland and played ball at CMU, so the family has strong Michigan ties.
Days like today make me grateful that we have one sport to look forward to consistenly. Really makes me appreciate what Beilein has been able to do here.
