The Seattle Seahawks have added an assistant coach to their staff.
Kerry Joseph, who played safety for Seattle from 1998-2001, has been hired as an offensive assistant. The announcement was made by his agency on Friday.
Big congrats to Kerry Joseph @kerryjoseph4 on returning to Seattle as an Off. Asst., where he played Safety for 4 seasons before heading up to the CFL to become one of the league's great QBs. He's a guy you'll want to follow. @Seahawks @ProStarSports @prostarphilly @JBakerProStar pic.twitter.com/iwEPVkq1Ql— ProStar Coaching (@ProStarCoaching) July 31, 2020
You read that tweet correctly, by the way. For those of you who don’t know, Joseph was a quarterback at McNeese State University before switching to defense in the NFL. When his NFL days were over and he went to the Canadian Football League, Joseph returned to quarterback and played for the defunct Ottawa Renegades, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Toronto Argonauts, and Edmonton.
It was in Saskatchewan where he had his best success, winning the 2007 Grey Cup along with the league’s Most Outstanding Player award.
Joseph retired from the CFL after the 2014 season and has since taken up assistant roles at his alma mater, as well as one year at Southeastern Louisiana. He was inducted into Saskatchewan’s Plaza of Honor last year.
Alternatively, I could’ve retitled this headline to read “Seahawks bring in another safety” and it would’ve been accurate.
