The Seahawks’ head coach search began three weeks ago today when they removed Pete Carroll from that position after a successful 14-year run. Since then six other teams around the league have filled their vacant head coach positions, taking several options off the table for Seattle. Yesterday two more came off the board when Ben Johnson and Bobby Slowik decided to stay in Detroit and Houston, respectively.
While the field has narrowed general manager John Schneider still has plenty of high-quality options, including a few wild cards. One of them to watch may be Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka. According to ESPN’s Giants beat reporter Dan Graziano, he may be a legitimate option for the Seahawks’ head coach job.
Interesting from @DanGrazianoESPN on ESPN just now that Mike Kafka could be a legitimate option for Seahawks. Seattle has interviewed Kafka twice.

The Giants offense was awful this year – finishing in the bottom three in both yards and points scored. However, Kafka may have playcalling potential hidden by a lack of tools. New York had the worst offensive line in the NFL this season and Daniel Jones remains a well-below average starter at quarterback. With a few personnel upgrades (like he’d have in Seattle) he might be able to produce a far better offense.
The search continues…
