Thoughts as Seahawks lose QB coach Fisch

Published on January 13, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Thoughts upon hearing a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter regarding Seattle quarterbacks coach Jedd Fisch leaving to become offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Miami:

  • Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck likes working with Fisch. He mentions Fisch and coordinator Jeremy Bates by name when he would not have to do so.
  • Seattle has run through quarterbacks coaches since Jim Zorn left following the 2007 season. Bill Lazor and Fisch stayed for relatively short stints.
  • We’re seeing more NFL assistants taking college jobs, it seems, and that could reflect concerns over a potential lockout. Seattle defensive line coach Dan Quinn is also headed for the college ranks, having accepted a job as defensive coordinator at Florida.
  • Pete Carroll’s inaugural Seahawks staff is suffering some key losses. Alex Gibbs, Quinn and Fisch are either gone or leaving.
  • Carroll’s background on defense makes losses on the offensive side potentially more damaging. It’s more important for a defensive-minded head coach to hire the right assistants on the offensive side.
  • Fisch and Quinn will continue coaching with the Seahawks until the team is finished playing this season.

Speaking of Zorn, who now coaches with Baltimore, some have suggested to me that he would fit well as offensive coordinator in St. Louis if the Rams lost Pat Shurmur to the Browns? The team could keep the same basic offensive system, and Zorn could coach quarterback Sam Bradford, too. Not a bad thought.
