Seahawks to hire Ken Norton Jr. as defensive coordinator, according to wife

Seahawks to hire Ken Norton Jr. as defensive coordinator, according to wife

The Seahawks' coordinator position opened last week when Seattle parted ways with Kris Richard.

The Seahawks announced last week that they had fired longtime offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach Tom Cable.

Russell Wilson led the National Football League with 34 touchdown passes this season but was regularly underwhelming during slow first-half performances that put stress on Seattle's defense and often had the Seahawks playing from behind. Norton briefly joined the 49ers' coaching staff last week after being fired by Oakland in late November.

Solari, who will turn 63 on Tuesday, was the tight ends coach and assistant offensive line coach with the 49ers in 1995-96 when Seattle coach Pete Carroll was the team's defensive coordinator. As Garafolo explained, Norton Jr. has an out in his contract that would allow him to leave the 49ers for Seattle. From 2010-14, he was with the San Francisco 49ers, whose head coach then, Jim Harbaugh, coaxed him away from Seattle, where Carroll wanted to keep him, Quinn and Gus Bradley as holdovers from Mora's staff.

In fact, Seattle's running game could thrive under Schottenheimer's tutelage. Both teams run similar defensive schemes. Wright. From 2012-2014, Norton was part of a defensive staff that helped the Seahawks lead the National Football League in scoring defense each of those seasons and in total defense in 2013 and 2014. Seattle lost safety Earl Thomas for the final month of the 2016 season and played half of the 2017 season without Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril.

He'll now have a chance to resurrect what was once among the best defenses in the National Football League the past few seasons.

Solari had interviewed with the Dallas Cowboys for their offensive line coaching job, but they ended up hiring Paul Alexander for that job. But in the third season under coach Jack Del Rio, the Raiders slumped to 6-10.

Schottenheimer was offensive coordinator of the Jets from 2006 until 2011 and for the Rams from 2012 until 2014.
