Seahawks offer Redskins’ Gray secondary job

The Seahawks, working to put a staff together under new head coach Pete Carroll, have offered Redskins secondary coach Jerry Gray a position coaching their defensive backs, according to a league source.

Gray, who the Redskins granted permission to interview this week with the Seahawks, met with team officials and is mulling the offer.

Gray is expected to take the job, though it’s conceivable the Redskins could work to keep him. He interviewed for the Redskins’ head coach job late in the regular season, before Jim Zorn was fired. Last year the Redskins blocked Gray from interviewing for the Houston defensive coordinator job.

Should Gray depart, the Redskins are likely to give Bob Slowik, a longtime associate of head coach Mike Shanahan, a position in the secondary (Slowik interviewed last week and will definitely join this staff in some capacity, according to sources). Current safeties coach Steve Jackson interviewed to stay on staff this week as well.
