Default Seahawks hire HC for 09?

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7...ext-head-coach


Quote:
The Seahawks have locked up Jim Mora Jr. to be their head coach after the 2008 season, league sources have told FOXSports.com.
Current head coach Mike Holmgren has already announced he will return for one more season, but rather than go through an extensive search, they have decided to hire from within.
Mora is currently the team's secondary/assistant head coach, and league sources say the promotion comes with an extension. It's unclear how such a move could be made with the Rooney Rule in effect, which requires each team to interview at least one minority for any head coaching vacancy. It could be that the league is now starting to acquiesce a bit on the rule when a team knows it's going to hire from within.

Its a good move to lock him up but like all ready posted I don't know how they get around the rule with out some kinda fine or some thing if he does take over as HC.

It doesn't apply if you promote from within

I guess this gets rid of the lame duck coach concept that could come over the players...since Mora will be there throughout the year anyhow

I don't like it one bit... Mora is not a fantastic head coach, and having a lame-duck coach is just not good for a team, no matter whether you know who the next guy will be or not.

i see no reason why he wont succeed...his offense in atlanta was a WCO, and while it wasnt tailored to fit the skills of his players there, he has the players to execute it in seattle. Ive always been a fan of his coaching style, players respond to him and he is not afraid to say wat he feels. Good luck to him.

I think this is a good move by the Seahawks and for Mora. Mora loves the Seattle area and it must be a dream for him to be a coach there. Plus Seattle will get a guy who has already developed a relationship with the players, staff and management.

I don't think Mora really got a fair shake in Atlanta because the focus was always on developing the talent on offense and it really was just inconsistent play by the players, specifically the young wr's. He has an ideal defense for his scheme in Seattle and really only needs a stout NT to finally get that defense to be great.

Anyone know when Greg Knapps contract expires? Because you know Mora will be looking to bring him on to run the WCO in Seattle.

He is going to do well this time around, like so many other coaches who were blasted only to get a job elsewhere and make it work, he's a young guy who is emotional and players love him...the WCO is built to be run by a team like Seattle, he has players he needs to win now

Greg Knapp was the qb coach for Steve Young and OC for Jeff Garcia, and they both did fine with him.

Except that both Steve Young and Jeff Garca are both West Coast Offense quarterbacks to a T. Mike Vick isn't. He never was. Neither was anybody on their offense.

The offensive system they ran in Atlanta was ********. They tried to implement a zone blocking scheme and a West Coast, short passing game at first. Then, they realized that Mike Vick wasn't a good fit in a disciplined, complicated passing game, and would be a better fit in a strong running game, coupled with deep play-action passing where he would be free to improvise. The result is that they were left with a mess - an offensive line built for zone blocking and three step drops that was way too small to hold up in 5 and 7 step drop pass protection.
