New D-line coach announced
Wed Jan 31, 2018 8:35 am
  • The reshaping of Seattle's defensive coaching staff continues.

    A source told Sporting News that Jethro Franklin will become the Seahawks’ new assistant defensive line coach.

    Franklin, 52, played one season for Seattle in 1989 as a defensive lineman before returning to coach the position at his alma mater Fresno State two years later. Franklin’s stint with the Bulldogs lasted eight years before he began bouncing between other defensive line jobs in the college and pro ranks.

    His NFL experience includes time with Green Bay (2000-04), Tampa Bay (2006), Houston (2007-09) and Oakland (2015-17).

    That, and he's worked for Pete at USC. So a familiar face.

    Makes sense. IMO give Ken what he wants and hopefully that puts him in the best position to succeed.

    No, this is Pete Carroll bringing in a guy that he had 2 separate stints with at USC. The fact that KNJ worked with him the past 3 seasons certainly doesn't hurt, but KNJ isn't building this defensive staff. These are exclusively PC's decisions, now more than ever.

    Doesn't mean Ken did not agree and want him brought in. Ultimately I agree Pete is obviously the #1 string puller here.

  • Does anyone know whether he is a good coach, what his style is, has he had success? His employment record seems solid.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    In the case of the defense, being a yes man is a good thing. It's Pete's D and that is his strength. Offense....not so much IMO.

    So...hmmm, you don't believe that Pete Carroll should have ANY input or say as to what kind of Defense he's trying to build??......That's interesting SMH

    Of course Pete should have input, it's his right as HC. Our best years were with Quinn, though. He was a beast gameplanner and made great adjustments. I don't think KNJ will provide that, given his tenure as Oakland DC.

    Sure he should have a say, but I don't want him running everything. It would be in the teams best interest if he stayed the heck away and had no input in the offense. It was stated that the coaching staff was handicapped because they had to run things the way Pete wanted them ran. I just wonder how much truth is in that statement. Its hard to deny it when the team was still running an offense around Marshawn Lynch and he had been gone for two years.

    Jack Del Rio was calling most the shots in Oakland, not Ken.

    Pete will be calling a lot here as far as planning goes as well.

  • Yeah Ken Norton Jr never really had a defense in Oakland that was 'his'. FAR from it.

    Awesome point. Pete has the idea of what he wants his offense to be. It really is not a bad ideology. Seems PC's weakness is finding expertise in to getting the people to run his vision, with the exception of the Lynch era (man miss I that guy).

    The defense I have been very happy with,,,,,,,,,,,,,of course with the exception of the opposing teams pulling off late game comebacks. That is a sign of mismanagement and is inexcusable. We were very close to winning 3 SBs in a row. Could have been historic.

  • I asked a question of some of the former fans of one of the teams in his resume...and got this response. Thanks...

    "Post 2. Jethro did have the luxury of coaching the likes of Aaron Kampman and KJB for much of that duration. Those were 2 solid players in their prime that definitely aided the cause
    Post 1. SeahawkFan.During Jethro's tenure we averaged 13th in points allowed, 9th in TD allowed, 21st in YPA and 14th in total Yards. Not bad for a rookie in the NFL. "

    For whatever it’s worth, Pete is the one who added read option into the offense in order to take advantage of what Russell can do with his legs. He’s definitely a defensive coach, but that doesn’t mean he’s clueless where offense is concerned.

  • I have thought this was a necessary move for a few seasons as the DLine seemed to getting worse at maintaining gap discipline. Like many things sometimes change causes a fresh approach to the way things are done.

    Changing up to reduce a comfort level forces individuals involved to be more conscious of their responsibilities. The team has several talented young DLinemen who will benefit from a fresh approach to their positional duties.

    We have acknowledged this with the OLine and it should be equally important to the DLine.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.
