The Seattle Seahawks are planning to hire Shane Waldron as their offensive coordinator to replace the dismissed Brian Schottenheimer, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who was the first to report the news.

Seattle has yet to confirm the move.

Waldron previously served under the Los Angeles Rams and head coach Sean McVay from 2017 to 2020, sporadically holding numerous positions for the team over the four-year stretch, including tight ends coach, quarterbacks coach, and passing game coordinator.

He also served as the offensive quality control coach for Washington in 2016 and the New England Patriots in 2008, as well as the latter’s tight end coach in 2009.

A key component in the Rams’ passing attack over the years, Waldron will now turn his attention to improving the Seahawks’ offense for the 2021 season and helping quarterback Russell Wilson correct his flaws.
