    I agree. (wahle shipped himself off)

    We will see more guys like Brandon Frye brought in.

    BTW, our own Brandon Frye was brought into the NFL by Gibbs.

    I hope to see more of him last year. He didn't too badly, IIRC, when thrown into the fray. Pity he got hurt so we could've gotten an extended look.

  • Does anyone know which of the present coaching staff has been canned or were they all canned along with Mora?
    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 completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

  • The only official subtraction I have seen up to this point in time has been Jim Mora.

    The only official addition I have seen up to this point in time has been Pete Carroll.

    At least those are the only changes made over at seahawks.com

    Kinda hard to ship off Wahle when he's retired.

  • I'm still waiting on a callback on one of our defensive coaches who hasn't been given his fate yet. My assumption is that he'll be interviewing with Pete this week sometime. The thing that really irks me, is that Lil Jim walks away with his 12 million bucks and he's griping on the radio about the whole deal because HE supposedly was "lied to" and blahbedy blah. The assistants were on one year deals for the most part, and are SOL due to his ineptitude in bringing in Knapp. That's what it boils down to for me. If he had gone outside of his own little egocentric world he could have prevented a lot of heartache for some good coaches. I think a good OC gets us 7 or 8 wins. But Jim gets to get paid and sit at home. Nice gig. Screwed the others though. Jerk.

  • I hear that Dan Quinn is one of the finalist for the DC job and that Jerry Gray from the Redskins has been requested by the Seahawks to talk about taking the DC job here, according to the NFLN La Confora (John or Juan or Jason ... hee hee ...). Saw it on the old Scout site, it was JLC's twitter page.

  • Keep in mind that Dan Quinn is a 3-4 guy. If he gets the job, do we switch over even if Carroll is a 4-3 guy?

    Coaching staff updates

    Posted by Danny O'Neil

    The overhaul of Seattle's offensive coaching staff will apparently be complete as none of the assistants from last year's staff are expected to be retained.

    Jeremy Bates is expected to be the coordinator, Jedd Fisch of Minnesota likely to coach quarterbacks and Alex Gibbs will coach the offensive line and serve as associate head coach.

    Mike Solari's only opportunity to stay on staff was as tight ends coach, a position that didn't fit for him.

    Who will fill the spots at tight ends, receivers and running backs coach is not known right now.

    On defense, Dan Quinn is expected to be retained, and there's still a chance Gus Bradley will stay on staff. The Seahawks are looking for a defensive coordinator as DeWayne Washington Walker appears ready to stay at New Mexico State. Also, on special teams, Brian Schneider is coming up from USC to fill the role Bruce DeHaven held the past three seasons.

  • I'm wondering (pure speculation) if there is a defensive mind on a current playoff team that PC is targeting...this could be a coordinator or perhaps not...anyone one know some body in the current playoff mix who has decent ties to PC who would come here to join him?

  • I'd like to see Bradley and Quinn stay on board. I've read nothing but good things about them. I'm pretty happy with the staff Carroll has put together so far, seems that at the very least, he knows how to surround himself with successful people.

    I think it depends on how you look at it. They were decent against the run. They had trouble getting sacks on the QB, but they were pretty good getting pressure and QB hits. As a whole the D line was asked to do something that they didn't excel at (this year) which is having 4 down lineman be the only pass rush. Like a lot of people have pointed out, if we had blitzed a little bit more (especially up the gut) our D line would have looked much better.

    Wait a minute...blitzing up the gut is legal???? I don't there's been a Seahawks defensive coach that's known that for the past half decade!

    Bradley hands were tied behind his back all year long. They were running Mora's schemes, and yes they were very unsuccessful. And really the same should be true again this year with Bradley as DC and running Carroll schemes. Don't think this is a bad move at all.

  • If the players respect Bradley then that speaks volumes, because they didn't respect Mora or Knapp. As far as I could tell Gus is a bright guy that was stuck in a horrible situation, and I am guessing if he had it to do over he never would have taken the job with Mora in the first place. He was sold a fraudulent bill of goods in my view.

    So was it Bradley you were speaking about or some other defensive coach who wasn't sure if they were in or out? Or some other less visible defensive coach/aide?

  • Bradley and Quinn had nothing to work with on the defensive line. I'm not sure whose boneheaded idea it was to move Mebane to the 3-tech or to keep constantly rotating players in a vain attempt to keep offenses guessing. I imagine Kerney's constant inclusion on the line was due to the size of his contract, which would have been a decision above either's heads.

  • Very Very Happy about this - our coaching staff has shaped up to be what I believe one of the best in the league - in a very short time. Between the veteran presence of Gibbs, Gray and Brown and the relative youth of Bates, Bradley and Quinn (youth in the flow of new ideas I feel) - the staff is already head and shoulders above most in the league.

    I think it's the player.. Landry has the most aggressive style of almost any safety I've watched, and he is prone to biting on play action and pump fakes. Matt Hasselbeck punked him pretty good back in the 2007 playoff season, and it looks like folks have been gameplanning similarly ever since.

    Sometimes you can get a guy's number once there's enough film on them.

  • This is a way to put a coaching staff together. A solid mix of up and comers with those who are experienced. It's too bad that Solari didn't want to stick around.

    Jim Mora, are you observing this? You stuck a fork in your Seahawk career by those ridiculous choices you made (I'm talking about primarily the offense coordinator).

  • Not so fast on Gray, as per KFFL HOTW

    "Seahawks | Gray says he has not yet signed
    Comment (0)
    Mon, 18 Jan 2010 16:18:41 -0800
    Updating a previous item, Jason Reid, of The Washington Post, reports Washington Redskins secondary coach Jerry Gray said reports of his hiring by the Seattle Seahawks are a bit premature. Gray said, "I do have an offer from Seattle to be their secondary coach, and it's a one-of-a-kind offer, but I have not signed yet. I'm not waiting for any particular reason, but with the holiday it hasn't happened yet. I'm not saying it won't happen."
    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 completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

  • Gray's DBs came up with 8 interceptions last season.

    That was tied with the Raiders and better than the Lions, and Rams. At least we aren't getting those teams' DB coaches.
