Falcons’ Dan Quinn goes for team-record third playoff  coaching win


Dan Quinn is just one of two Falcons coaches with at least two postseason wins.

It’s not a rich history.

Quinn currently has the Falcons record for best playoff winning percentage after his two seasons. As the franchise plays its 23rd postseason game on Saturday, Quinn has a chance to equal the record for number of wins, tying Dan Reeves.

The Falcons take a 9-13 postseason record into this weekend’s Wild Card playoff game at the Rams.

Here’s a look at the Falcons’ all-time postseason coaching record:

Dan Quinn: 2-1, .667

Dan Reeves: 3-2, .600

Jim Mora: 1-1, .500

Jerry Glanville: 1-1, .500

Leeman Bennett: 1-3, .250

Mike Smith: 1-4, .200

June Jones: 0-1, .000

Totals: 9-13, .409
