Coaches Casullo, Austin Going to New Teams

New, comments

As expected, the Tampa Tribune reports that Seahawks special teams coach Bob Casullo is joining the staff of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after a two-year stint in Seattle. Additionally, the East Valley (AZ) Tribune confirms that defensive backs coach Teryl Austin has joined the Cardinals staff after four years with the Seahawks.

The special teams during Casullo's two years here were marked by a very scattershot (that's putting it semi-mildly) first season for the Hawks' Super Bowl year, but a greatly improved second season that saw breakout performances from punter Ryan Plackemeier and returner Nate Burleson.

Austin was not expected to be retained by the Seahawks following a troubled season with the DB's.
