Interesting background provided by Bob Condotta or the Times ..........

"The Seahawks have not confirmed the hiring of Jordan or his specific job title. But while Jordan’s job would appear likely to fill the duties held last year by Curry, the specific title of pass rush specialist is not something the Seahawks have typically had.

But it is one Jordan has held before, including last year at Michigan State in what was his first season on an FBS staff.

He has never had a full-time role on an NFL staff but for the past few years has been the CEO of his own company, Brandon Jordan Trench Performance, devoted to training defensive linemen and pass rushers. With that company he has worked with almost 200 NFL players, including current Seahawks Uchenna Nwosu, Al Woods, Poona Ford and L.J. Collier. His company’s Facebook page states he has worked with DK Metcalf, as well.

Other NFL players he has trained include the likes of T.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, Damon “Snacks” Harrison, Cameron Heyward, Chandler Jones and Von Miller.

Jordan played offensive tackle at Missouri S&T, a Division II school in Rolla, Mo."

He's got a solid resume of working some of the top pass rush guys - TJ Watt and Chandler Jones. It also helps that he's got familiarity with a number of current Seahawk players too.

I'm really liking this move. According to Sports Illustrated:


Despite being in East Lansing for less than 14 months, Jordan made a big impact on the Spartans' football program. Not only did he help Michigan State land several four-star defensive line or EDGE prospects in the 2023 recruiting class — Bai Jobe, Andrew Depaepe and Jalen Thompson — he also helped turn UNLV transfer Jacoby Windmon into one of the best pass rushers in the Big Ten in 2022. Jordan was heavily involved in recruiting five-star defensive lineman David Stone, who has made several trips to East Lansing already. After the Spartans lost already defensive line coach Marco Coleman earlier this offseason, it may be difficult for MSU to stay near the top of Stone's list of schools.

It sounds like Pete is getting a solid worker here to help us not only with potential draft selections on defense, but a pass-rushing coach who has an impressive resume.

Very nice. This guy sounds like a coach that can make it happen.
I'm also betting that his specializing on the Pass-Rushing particulars, fills in a lot of holes that Clint Hurtt doesn't even know are there.
Sometimes it's those subtleties that are too often overlooked.
I'd love to listen in on his critiquing some missed moves/plays left out on the field after reviewing some game tapes of the Seahawks Defense.
