A third name is now contending for the Dallas Cowboys’ vacant defensive coordinator position.

Former Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn is scheduled to meet with the Cowboys for a formal interview Monday, a source told The Dallas Morning News. ESPN and NFL Network first reported discussions between the two sides.
