Seattle Seahawks hire former Alabama OC Ryan Grubb to the same position

The tenure didn’t last long, but former Alabama offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb has officially signed on with the Seattle Seahawks for the same position. Grubb’s tenure with the Crimson Tide was a bit murky as he was never officially unveiled as the OC at Alabama, but he introduced himself to the Red Elephant Club as “your new offensive coordinator” and even spent time on the recruiting trail for DeBoer.

Grubb fought hard for the Huskies’ head coaching job, but ultimately didn’t get it so he chose to follow DeBoer down South. However, Grubb is a Pacific Northwest guy and it sounded like he never really wanted to leave the area. Grubb was the best OC in college football a season ago, so it is a bummer of a loss, but I’m sure DeBoer has known this is coming for a while and has had a plan in place.

It’s a great addition for the Seahawks who are under a new regime after moving off of Super Bowl winning head coach Pete Carroll this offseason. It is probably going to be just a year or two until Grubb gets his shot as a head coach.
