Quinn grew up in the village of Dolton where he went to Thornridge High School, and was a part of the greatest basketball in the history of Illinois high school basketball. He won back-to-back titles with the Falcons, losing only one game during those two seasons.
After a successful career as a high school player, Quinn received several scholarship offers from universities, and decided to enroll at Indiana University and play for Hoosiers, coached by Bob Knight. His college career was even better than high school; he won the NCAA Championship in 1976 without losing a single game during the season, and was named into First-team All-Big Ten two times, in 1974 and 1975.
After an extremely successful career in college, Quinn declared for the 1976 NBA Draft, and was selected as the seventh overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks at the time were nowhere near championship contenders, and in Quinn’s rookie season they lost 52 times. Quinn had decent performance for a rookie as he averaged 8.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and most importantly, 2.4 steals per game. Never in his career did Quinn become an offensive force, but brought a difference to the game with his defensive skills. He stayed in Milwaukee until 1982, improving his numbers season after season, and then he was traded to the Boston Celtics for Dave Cowens. He was used mostly as a bench player, continuing with his defensive plays and was in large part a contributor to the NBA title that Boston won in 1984, when they defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games. The next season, his team once again reached finals and again faced Lakers, but this time they lost in six games.
After the end of the 1985 season, he was traded to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Jerry Sichting. He played in 32 games for the Pacers but without any major success, and was waived by the club, and soon after, Quinn announced his retirement from basketball.
Quinn then started pursuing a broadcasting career, and found his spot on ESPN, and on NBC, but he also covered NBA games and college basketball for CBS Sports. Quinn then moved a step higher when he was appointed as the color commentator for television broadcasts on Fox Sports Indiana, and has been serving in the position with Chris Denari, further increasing his wealth.
Back in 2004 he was named Vice President of Communications for Pacers Sports & Entertainment.
Regarding his personal life, Quinn has been married to Rhonda with whom he has four children.
He has been heavily involved in the Indiana community, helping numerous philanthropic organizations, which has seen him recognised for his charitable efforts.
