The Seahawks have reached an agreement with Casey Bradley to be the defensive coordinator and Dan Quinn to be the defensive line coach and assistant head coach.
Quinn was the coach who interviewed with the Seahawks on Thursday. He coached the past two seasons with the New York Jets. Quinn previously worked with Jim Mora when both were on the 49ers coaching staff. Quinn coached with the 49ers from 2001 to 2004.
The additions mean that John Marshall and Dwaine Board will not return to the roles they held last season. Marshall became Seattle's acting defensive coordinator after Ray Rhodes suffered a mild stroke prior to the 2005 season. Board has coached the Seahawks defensive line since 2003.
