TE Coach Hired

Pete Carroll mentioned that the Seahawks have hired Pat McPherson, formerly of the the Denver Broncos, to coach tight ends. McPherson has worked with OC Jeremy Bates before, and with (now confirmed) QB Coach Jedd Fisch before in Denver. Look for this offense to be a bit more willing to gamble than we’re used to. Fisch coached WRs in Denver.

We had previously heard that Alex Gibbs would coach tight ends. This is not the case, and that’s a good thing most likely.

Also in the news: John Schneider will retain the curent scouting personnel. That is kind of a no-brainer this close to the combine and draft.
