Report: Seattle Seahawks interested in Ken Dorsey for offensive coordinator job

Brian Schottenheimer is gone.

Following their 2020 season, the Seattle Seahawks fired their offensive coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer in an effort to change up the team’s fortunes. Now, Buffalo Bills quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey is on Seattle’s short list of potential replacement options.

Dorsey has been seen as the heir apparent to offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, should Daboll accept a head coaching job elsewhere. He interviewed for the Bills’ OC job in 2017 before it went to Rick Dennison and then joined Daboll’s offensive staff as QBs coach in 2019 when David Culley left to join the Baltimore Ravens staff. Dorsey had previously served as the Carolina Panthers’ QBs coach from 2013-2017.

According to Field Gulls, SB Nation’s Seahawks blog, the team has spoken with Anthony Lynn, Mike Kafka, and Doug Pederson who all will not reportedly get the job. Saints QB coach Joe Lombardi is another candidate and he’s the former offensive coordinator with the Detroit Lions. ESPN’s Adam Schefter also noted they were taking to Los Angeles Rams passing-game coordinator Shane Waldron.

If Dorsey leaves, it’s unclear what would happen with the quarterbacks coach position. Wide receivers coach Chad Hall would become the next logical replacement for Daboll, should he depart.
