Ryan Grubb is the new Seahawks offensive coordinator and he’s bringing at least one friend with him.
According to a report by Tom Pelissero at NFL Network, Seattle has finalized the hiring of former Washington offensive line coach Scott Huff to fill the same position on head coach Mike Macdonald’s staff.
The #Seahawks have finalized the hire of Scott Huff as their offensive line coach, per source. Huff worked for new Seattle OC Ryan Grubb at Washington (and, very briefly, Alabama) and now follows him to the NFL.

Huff had been Washington’s OL coach since the 2020 season and before that (2017-2019) he was their offensive line/run game coordinator.
Fans who are thrilled by the news should keep in mind that the Huskies had arguably the best offensive line in the country last season. Meanwhile, the Seahawks had one of the worst in the NFL – and it will take time to build that unit up.
To start with, Seattle might consider targeting Huskies left tackle Troy Fautanu in the first round of the draft. Charles Cross had a promising rookie season but regressed in a bad way in 2023, especially in pass protection. Difficult as it is to swallow, finding potential replacements for Cross and right tackle Abe Lucas – who has a long-term knee injury – should be on the menu this offseason.
