Now that Championship Sunday has concluded, our Seattle Seahawks find themselves able to accelerate the hiring process for Head Coach. Two promising candidates that John Schneider seems inclined to speak with had their seasons end last night. Sad for the teams involved, but convenient for the ‘Hawks. Once interviews with Michael McDonald and Ben Johnson have concluded (and any second interviews required of all the remaining candidates), the Seahawks will probably move swiftly in naming the next Head Coach. Now that Johnson and McDonald are available to interview in person, are you excited about the hiring process? Will Dan Quinn suffice or do yall want new blood in the building? What about the positions for OC and DC? Do you have a preference? Interesting week ahead for our squad. Let’s see how it all shakes out!
