Reports: Micheal Barrow to replace Ken Norton Jr. on Seattle staff

Former University of Miami linebackers coach Micheal Barrow will become the new linebackers coach of the Seahawks, according to a report from Thayer Evans of Sports Illustrated (247Sports.com also is reporting Barrow to Seattle).

Barrow did not coach last season, reportedly to tend to his sick mother.

He had coached at Miami from 2007 until last August after having played in the NFL for 12 seasons (and FYI, he does instead spell his first name Micheal and not the more common Michael).

At Miami he coached alongside Brennan Carroll, the son of Seahawks coach Pete Carroll who is also said to be joining Seattle’s staff.

Barrow would replace Ken Norton Jr., who left last week to become the defensive coordinator for the Oakland Raiders.

Barrow played on two national champion Miami teams (1989, 1991) coached by Dennis Erickson, who later coached the Seahawks from 1995-98.
