  • The reshaping of Seattle's defensive coaching staff continues.

    A source told Sporting News that Jethro Franklin will become the Seahawks’ new assistant defensive line coach.

    Franklin, 52, played one season for Seattle in 1989 as a defensive lineman before returning to coach the position at his alma mater Fresno State two years later. Franklin’s stint with the Bulldogs lasted eight years before he began bouncing between other defensive line jobs in the college and pro ranks.

    His NFL experience includes time with Green Bay (2000-04), Tampa Bay (2006), Houston (2007-09) and Oakland (2015-17).

    That, and he's worked for Pete at USC. So a familiar face.

    Makes sense. IMO give Ken what he wants and hopefully that puts him in the best position to succeed.

    No, this is Pete Carroll bringing in a guy that he had 2 separate stints with at USC. The fact that KNJ worked with him the past 3 seasons certainly doesn't hurt, but KNJ isn't building this defensive staff. These are exclusively PC's decisions, now more than ever.

    Doesn't mean Ken did not agree and want him brought in. Ultimately I agree Pete is obviously the #1 string puller here.

  • Does anyone know whether he is a good coach, what his style is, has he had success? His employment record seems solid.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!
