With the coaching situation in Cleveland unsettled and the chances looming of a new head coach not wanting to keep current defensive coordinator Mel Tucker around, a league source tells us that the Browns have given the Seahawks permission to interview Mel Tucker for the defensive coordinator position in Seattle.
Though current defensive coordinator John Marshall has yet to resign or be demoted or politely asked to leave the premises, it’s not a good sign for Marshall’s ongoing career in Seattle.
Regardless of whether Tucker or Marshall or Rod Marinelli or someone else is the next defensive coordinator, it’s expected that new coach Jim Mora Jr. (a confirmed member of PFT Planet) will call the plays on defense.
Tucker has been interviewed for the Browns head-coaching job.
The¬†Browns’ decision to let him interview for the same job with the Seahawks¬†apparently puts him in play for any other defensive coordinator position that might be available.

    As a Seahawks fan I am not at all happy about Seattle even mentioning Tucker or Marinelli.
    Why the hell are they even considering any of these two clowns ?
    Both of their defenses sucked ass.
    I hope Mora doesn’t make things any worse in Seattle; even though
    that would be slightly difficult.

    As a Browns fan, I have to wonder why Mel Tucker is being interviewed anywhere…oh thats right, he’s african american. perhaps they’re satisfying their rooney rule obligations, or perhaps THEY want the 27th ranked defense in the league instead.
