Seattle’s head coaching torch has been passed from Mike Holmgren to Jim Mora. But Seattle is in the process of tweaking its coaching staff as well.
Seattle requested permission Tuesday to interview Patriots special teams coach Brad Seely, a veteran assistant who has been with New England since 1999. It is an unusual request, asking a special teams coach to interview for another special teams coach job. Bruce DeHaven coached the Seahawks special teams last season to mixed results.
Also, the Seahawks are interviewing Buccaneers linebackers coach Gus Bradley for Seattle’s defensive coordinator job. The Seahawks already have spoken with former Lions head coach Rod Marinelli as well.
But clearly Seattle is preparing to shuffle its staff beyond its head coach.
