While the Seahawks expect their primary assistants to return in 2013 — specifically, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach and run game coordinator Tom Cable — the team figures to lose some personnel between now and next season.
And the first departure is apparently in the offing as Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union is reporting today that the Jacksonville Jaguars will hire Seattle defensive quality control coach Robert Saleh as linebackers coach.
Per source, #jaguars hire Robert Saleh as linebackers coach and Scottie Hazelton as assistant linebackers coach.

Saleh had previously been a linebackers coach with the Houston Texans, and had been with Seattle the last three seasons, the first two working under current Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley when Bradley was defensive coordinator for the Seahawks.
