The Seattle Seahawks confirmed on Tuesday the hiring of Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator, Ken Norton as defensive coordinator, and Mike Solari as offensive line coach. They also announced the firing of linebackers coach Michael Barrow.

The article only mentioned that Kris Richard was “relieved of his duties” which may or may not mean that he’ll stay in the organization in some capacity; there has been speculation that he might accept a demotion, though nothing solid has been reported on that front. It probably depends on the market for Richard now that he’s a free agent.

The post also announced that Darrell Bevell and Tom Cable were “relieved” of their duties, and we know that Cable is joining Jon Gruden in Oakland with the Raiders.

The Seahawks have not announced a replacement for Barrow, if there is one. He’s been with the Seahawks since 2015 after seven years of doing the same job with the Miami Hurricanes.
