John Schneider says new Seahawks coaches won’t be at the combine

The Seahawks announced a bunch of new assistant coach hirings yesterday, bringing the total to 23 members on their 2024 coaching staff, including Mike Macdonald. The Seahawks waited until the Ravens were eliminated from the playoffs to hire him, and they’ve been methodically building up their staff ever since. However, they are the last team around the league to get their coaching staff ready so they have some catching up to do.

With that in mind, general manager John Schneider says that none of the new coaches will be attending the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis next week. Instead, they’ll be at the VMAC in Renton working on install in preparation for April 8 when players arrive.

Fans should expect a bit of sloppiness on both sides of the ball, at least early in the season. Macdonald and Ryan Grubb will be introducing entirely new schemes on both sides of the ball – and they’re pretty radically different than what Clint Hurtt and Shane Waldron ran for the last couple of seasons.
