Jim Mora’s firing caught Seahawks receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh by surprise, like a lot of folks.
“I was very shocked,” Houshmandzadeh said. “It’s something that I can’t believe. I think coach Mora is a hell of a coach. You can point to a lot of things. It’s unfortunate coach Mora has to take the blame for all of us.”
Houshmandzadeh denied that the Seahawks tuned Mora out at the end of the season.
“That’s all media talk. Everybody in the locker room was behind coach Mora. Every man in there stood behind him.”
The Seahawks didn’t show their support on the field. They lost their last four games by a combined score of 123-37.
We’ll have more on who may be Houshmandzadeh’s next coach in a few minutes.
