Seahawks work quickly to replace Gus Bradley; Rod Marinelli to leave the Bears (Shutd
Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley accepted the head coaching position with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday morning and Pete Carroll wasted little time finding his replacement. The Seahawks announced on Thursday afternoon that University of Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will replace Bradley as the team's defensive coordinator. Quinn, 42, coached the Seahawks defensive line from 2009-10 and played an integral role in turning around Red Bryant's career. A fourth-round pick out of Texas A&M in 2008, Bryant couldn't stay healthy or get on the field before the team moved him to defensive end in 2010. Bryant has developed into a run-stopping force and team leader, signing a five-year, $35 million contract extension with $14.5 million in guaranteed money last March. In addition to his work at Florida, Quinn has a lengthy history in the NFL, coaching defensive lines with the San Francisco 49ers (2003-04), Miami Dolphins (2005-06) and New York Jets (2007-08) before he was lured to the Pacific Northwest by former Seahawks head coach Jim Mora. By hiring Quinn, the Seahawks have also protected against the potential departure of defensive line coach Todd Wash, who could follow Bradley to Jacksonville as a defensive coordinator.
