After the termination of OC Jeremy Bates there was a lot of rumors that Josh McDaniels was in talks with the Seahawks to fill the Offensive Coordinator position. The Rams announced just a few minutes ago that McDaniels was hired as their Offensive Coordinator. Something tells me that the Rams heard that McDaniels could be hired by Seattle and someone in the front office agreed to pay top dollar. Good for the Rams!
Seattle just announced the hiring of the Raider’s former coach Tom Cable as the assistant head coach and offensive line coach. Tom was over his head as the coach of the Raiders. He is great with offense though. He knows the ZBS scheme. This is a great hire. Despite what the media says about Cable, he knows his stuff. He was a direct offensive descendant of Alex Gibbs.
Other coaching changes have occurred for the Seahawks within the last few minutes as well. Todd Wash was hired for the defensive line. He worked with Gus Bradley in Tampa Bay. Seattle also promoted Kris Richard from asst. DB coach to DB coach and Rocky Seto from quality control coach to safeties coach.
So far nothing on the Offensive Coordinator position. There has been talks about Jim Zorn and Ex Hawks’ QB coach Jedd Fisch. More to come soon!
