Tom Cable will not be your average offensive line coach in Seattle. He also will get the title of assistant head coach, and that comes with more responsibilities.
As ESPN.com’s Mike Sando points out, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Cable will be involved in “every aspect” in the team’s wandering offensive coordinator search. Cable will essentially direct the running game in Seattle, with the coordinator more focused on the passing game. It seems that Cable will out-rank the coordinator.
After listening to Carroll, we got the distinct impression he had no definite plan of who he was going to hire at coordinator. But he seemed fine with that because he had Cable in place.
The plan sounds a little more defined at quarterback. He called re-signing Matt Hasselbeck a “top priority” and said that his first offseason meeting was with Hasselbeck and G.M. John Schneider to go over their future.
He says he expects Hasselbeck to be the team’s starting quarterback next year.
“I don’t think there’s any other way to look at it right now,” Carroll said.
