Gray joins Seahawks staff, Bradley stays as defensive coordinator

We told you Friday evening that Redskins secondary coach Jerry Gray was offered the same job with the Seahawks.  On Monday, he accepted it.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Gray will join the Seattle defensive staff led by coordinator Gus Bradley.  It was previously unclear if Bradley would retain the same role he had last year.

Gray’s departure means the key parts of the Redskins defensive coaching staff will not return to the team.  Former coordinator Greg Blache has retired.   Former linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti will remain in Washington as a defensive assistant.

  1. Hopefully he can sure up that secondary the 12th man cannot go thru that again! Burned then next series burned then burned come on! Get healthy and Truf needs to get back to pro bowl form.

  2. Get used to your secondary playing 15 yards off the receivers, your safeties 30 yards deep, and nobody ever catching INTs again. Having watched it for 5 seasons in WAS we know what you’re getting.

  3. Wonder how Pete Carroll will feel when Gray interviews for Carroll’s head-coaching job while Carroll still has it?

  4. Gray apparently passed the Seahawk’s physical — his tearducts had the necessary capacity for the ref crying required of all Seahawks’ coaches and staff.

  5. Hopefully for Seahawks fans the 5 yard cushion technique that he employed in Washington won’t come with him to Seattle.

  6. His zone schemes could never defend anything deep and our secondary was plagued by very bad tackling. Good riddance.

  7. Now I can see why the Statue of Leiweke in front of the Seahawks new headquaters reads with silent lips…
    “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the V-Mac door!”

  8. If Seattle is looking for a group of DB’s who only care about themselves, can’t tackle and can’t catch. Then he’s your guy!!!! Oh, sorry almost forgot, if they like late hits out of bounds as well!

  9. Good luck Seattle! Hope you like the 15 yard cushions that are coming your way! I am glad that we won’t have them and plus Shanahan doesn’t have to worry about Gray interviewing for his job.

  10. As a skins fan i am glad Jerry Grey is leaving, his secondary was the defense’s achilles heel this year. And if Seattle needs someone to satisfy the dumb ass Rooney rule next year i am sure he would be down.
