Coaching Changes In Seattle


By Shannon Sanchez //@ShannonSanchez3

It is the offseason.  One thing that kicks into full gear in the offseason is the Coaching Carousel, and boy is it going with the Seattle Seahawks

Coaching has dominated the week for Seattle. It started last Wednesday with the announcement that offensive coordinator Darrel Bevell had been fired, then followed closely with the announcement that offensive line coach/assistant head coach Tom Cable was also let go. Rumors abounded about defensive coordinator Kris Richard had a tenuous hold on that position.

So what was next? Although there has not been an official announcement on any of the coaches named by the Seahawks, all signs point to them hiring Brian Schottenheimer as the next offensive coordinator.  

News has come out that Seattle might be reuniting with two former coaches. First, offensive line coach Mike Solari. He was the offensive line coach in 2008 and 2009 under head coaches Mike Holmgren and Jim Mora.

Former linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. is reported to have signed a contract to become the next defensive coordinator. He has a long history with head coach Pete Carroll, having coached together at USC and from coaching in Seattle from 2004 to 2009.


A very busy week indeed for a Seattle team that is looking to tweak some things to get back to the dominant Seahawks team from a few years ago.
