He initially signed a five-year contract, but the details were not handed out to the media. But in 2018, it was reported that he signed a contract extension worth $13 million. 

The contract extension might’ve come with a better salary package but didn’t help Quinn reach the top 10 highest-paid NFL coaches list made by Bleachers Report in 2018. 

Bill Belichick, Jon Gruden, and Pete Carroll held the top three positions on the list. Belichick was banking $12.5 million, and Gruden was approximately making $10 million as the Raiders’ head coach.
