It’ll be no surprise to hear some of the Seahawks assistants associated with coaching jobs elsewhere as the off-season progresses.
The first such news comes this morning from Ian Rapaport of NFL.com, who is reporting that the Cleveland Browns may go after Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to to fill their head coaching opening:

The Browns fired Rob Chudzinski after only one season.
Quinn is completing his first year as Seattle’s defensive coordinator after having worked last year at Florida, after having previously been a defensive line coach for the Seahawks in 2009 and 2010.
Quinn replaced Gus Bradley, who left Seattle to become the head coach of the Jaguars.
UPDATE — According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Browns have asked for permission to talk to Quinn.
As noted, Quinn can interview on Jan. 5, per NFL rules:
Browns requested permission to interview Seahawks DC Dan Quinn for HC job, per source. Quinn can interview Jan. 5.
