The Seattle Seahawks added another name to what is clearly becoming a search for a new defensive coordinator.
Casey Bradley will interview today with Seahawks brass, according to a report in the Tampa Tribune. Bradley served as Tampa Bay’s defensive quality control coach for one season, and for the past two seasons Bradley has been in charge of the team’s linebackers. Bradley does not have a contract with Tampa Bay for next season.
Bradley is the second coach with ties to Tampa Bay to interview for the position. The Seahawks talked recently with fired Detroit Lions coach Rod Marinelli about a possible job with the team. Marinelli was Tampa Bay’s defensive line coach when Seattle president Tim Ruskell worked for the Buccaneers.
New Seahawks coach Jim Mora had his first staff meeting Monday, and also met individually with Seattle’s current assistant coaches. A decision on which coaches have been retained and which ones will be released has not been announced by the team, but it appears defensive coordinator John Marshall’s job is in jeopardy because of the coaching candidates the Seahawks are interviewing this week.
Bradley coached for 10 seasons at North Dakota State University. He served as the defensive coordinator at North Dakota State from 1997 to 2002 and again in 2005.
