Seahawks hired ex-Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to replace Gus Bradley in the same position.
That was quick. Quinn coached Seattle's defensive line in Pete Carroll's first year on the job before heading to Florida for the past two seasons, picking up valuable experience in defending spread and pistol offenses. The Seahawks already run Carroll's scheme, so there won't be any major changes under Quinn, who was also mentioned as a candidate to become the defensive coordinator of the Browns, Eagles or Jaguars. Seattle should remain one of fantasy's top defenses in 2013. Thu, Jan 17, 2013 01:34:00 PM

According to FOX broadcaster Thom Brennaman, Seahawks DC Gus Bradley will interview for two head-coaching jobs other than the Eagles.

Bradley is regarded in some circles as a favorite to land the Eagles job. Other openings include the Cardinals, Chargers, Bears, and Jaguars. Bradley's defense was gashed by the Falcons in the first half of Sunday's game, but that's hardly a reason to bypass a man considered a "brilliant football mind."

Sources tell 5 News Arkansas that Arkansas Razorbacks officials contacted Pete Carroll about the university's head-coaching vacancy, but were turned down.

Sources also tell 5 News that NFL Network's Steve Mariucci reached out to Arkansas officials. Mooch is a likelier candidate than Carroll, who has a good thing going as one of the NFL's highest paid coaches for one of the league's up-and-coming teams. Carroll is entering his third season in Seattle. He won a playoff game in 2010, and last year won five of his final eight games.

The Seahawks racked up a season-high six sacks in their Week 6 win over the Bears, tallying a safety in the process.

It's no secret that Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler tends to make horrid decisions when under pressure, so applying it will surely be one of Seattle's top priorities today. They weren't able to rattle Drew Brees much last weekend, so it will be interesting to see what they do against Chicago's offensive line, which let Cutler get sacked a league-high 52 times in 2010.

Seahawks hired Jerry Gray as defensive backs coach.

Gray had a better gig as assistant head coach of the Redskins, but was willing to take a demotion to get out of D.C. Pete Carroll continues to fill out an impressive staff, with DL coach Dan Quinn staying, Jeremy Bates running the offense, Alex Gibbs coaching OLs, and Gus Bradley at defensive coordinator.

Seahawks defensive line coach Dan Quinn will remain with the team in 2010.

Quinn and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley will be the only holdovers from the previous coaching regime. There are a number of openings still on the staff, but Jedd Fisch is expected to join Jeremy Bates and Alex Gibbs on offense.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Friday that Gus Bradley will stay on as the team's defensive coordinator.

Jerry Gray is being offered the team's secondary coach job, while Seattle tries to retain DL coach Dan Quinn in his current position. Bradley ran a fairly effective front seven in 2009, and the pass defense woes weren't all his fault. Top CB Marcus Trufant wasn't healthy all season and SS Deon Grant got old in a hurry. The secondary will be a priority for Seattle in April.

The Seahawks have reportedly offered Redskins DBs coach Jerry Gray a spot on their staff in the same position.

It was previously reported that Gray interviewed for Seattle's coordinator job, but Gus Bradley may keep that role. The move would be of the "lateral" nature for Gray, and a downgrade if you consider his assistant head coach/defensive backs title in Washington. We're guessing Gray won't bite.

Former Bucs LB Derrick Brooks said on Sirius NFL radio Friday that the Seahawks will retain defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.

Bradley was Brooks' position coach in Tampa, so the two presumably have a relationship. Seattle had pursued Skins DBs coach Jerry Gray and current DL coach Dan Quinn as potential replacements for Bradley, but keeping continuity is logical because Pete Carroll teaches a similar Tampa-2 scheme.

The Colts have reportedly chosen not to file tampering charges against the Seahawks for their pursuit of Tony Dungy to fill a vacant team president position.

Dungy retired a year ago, but he remains under contract in Indy until next month. The Seahawks apparently did not realize that Dungy was still property of the Colts when they made the overtures.

The Seahawks have received permission to interview Redskins DBs coach Jerry Gray for their defensive coordinator position.

It's unclear why Gray hasn't generated more interest, but he'd be a terrific hire for Pete Carroll considering the outstanding secondaries Gray oversaw in D.C.'s Jason La Canfora suggests that Carroll might look into a co-coordinator situation with current Seahawks DL coach Dan Quinn involved.

According to ESPN's NFC West blogger Mike Sando, it's clear that new coach Pete Carroll is the No. 1 decision-maker on football matters in the Seahawks organization.

Seahawks CEO Ted Leiweke referred to the team's front-office setup as a "collaboration," though Carroll is leading the charge. Per, the new coach expects to be "intricately involved in all aspects" of the organization. Carroll will also sit in on GM interviews and will have a strong voice in personnel matters.

Seahawks named Pete Carroll head coach.

Carroll is being hired before a GM, similar to the Eric Mangini situation in Cleveland last year. Clearly, Carroll will have the most power in the organization after only owner Paul Allen. Carroll, 58, runs a Tampa-2 style defense like the one already in place under Jim Mora, so not much will change on that side of the ball. Jeremy Bates will coordinate the offense with a West Coast approach, using similar terminology to ex-OC Greg Knapp's. Armed with two top-15 picks (Nos. 6, 14), look for Carroll to target a quarterback and left tackle in April's draft.

The Seahawks are scheduled to meet with head coaching target Pete Carroll on Sunday night and Monday, according to FOX's Jay Glazer.

The sides still haven't hammered out Carroll's exact role. It's believed he will have full control over the Seahawks' roster, but the team wants to hire a general manager. Carroll is expected to be named the team's president.

The Associated Press is disputing reports that the Seahawks have an agreement in place with Pete Carroll to become the next head coach.

The AP reports that the sides remain in discussions, and the Seahawks do not plan on granting Carroll personnel powers as GM or team president. The delay could be a case of Carroll pushing for more power, or a publicity ploy by the Seahawks to make their four-hour interview with Leslie Frazier appear more legit.
