Seahawks announce coaching staff changes

The Seahawks today announced a few changes to their coaching staff. You can read the details in the press release below:

The Seattle Seahawks have named Will Harriger offensive assistant, Chris Morgan assistant offensive line coach and Chad Morton assistant special teams coach, with Nate Carroll now assuming the role of assistant wide receivers coach and John Glenn quality control/defense coach, the team announced this afternoon.

Harriger, whose career began in 2004 at Midwestern State in Wichita Falls, has spent the majority of his time on the defensive side of the ball, focusing on the linebacker position. He has also coached at Tennessee-Martin (2005-06), Auburn (2007), Texas (2008), Tennessee-Martin (2009), Texas Tech (2010-11) and most recently at Florida (2012-13).

Morgan spent the last five years with the Oakland Raiders (2009-10) and Washington Redskins (2011-13) in the same capacity. Since 2012, the Redskins lead the NFL with 4,873 rushing yards, leading Seattle by only 106 yards during that span.

Morton, a seven-year NFL veteran as a running back/kick returner, spent the last five seasons with the Green Bay Packers, serving the last four as assistant special teams coach. Primarily a kick returner as a pro, Morton aided the development of kickoff returner Randall Cobb, ranking second in the NFL with a 27.7 avg. during his rookie season in 2011 and becoming the first player in NFL history with more than 900 kickoff return yards and 900 receiving yards in a single-season in 2012. Cobb was named a Pro Bowl returner alternate after both seasons.
