Chad Morton lands in Seattle as assistant special-teams coach

The Seahawks have added an assistant coach who’ll have a little extra incentive to prepare for the first game of the 2014 regular season.

Chad Morton, a former NFL player who was let go by the Packers as an assistant special-teams coach after 2013, has been hired as assistant special-teams coach in Seattle.

Morton replaces John Glenn, who moves to quality control/defense on Pete Carroll’s staff.  The Seahawks hired Morton after five years in Green Bay as an assistant.

The former NFL running back and return specialist spent seven seasons with the Saints, Jets, Redskins, and Giants.  As a rookie in 2000, Morton tied the single-game playoff reception record with 13, in a division-round playoff loss to the Vikings.

The Seahawks also named Will Harriger offensive assistant and Chris Morgan assistant offensive line coach.  Nate Carroll moves from offensive assistant to assistant receivers coach.

    Good luck to Chad in Seattle. We wish him the best!

    (We Packer fans try to set a good example for degenerate Viking fans.)

    No mention of the Redskins raiding the Jets roster for Morton, the punter, and Coles back in 2001 or whatever? People want more football and the NFL isn’t oversaturated. People were DYING for you to cover this angle but you did not provide it.

    And to think, Morton would be completely useless in today’s NFL with the irrelevancy of the kickoff return.

    I can almost picture the scene as he finishes his sad, sad post, wipes away salty tears from the keypad and consoles himself by sucking on a little grape-flavored juice box … ” there there…”

    I’m stunned. Stunned that Minnesota won a playoff game in this century. Who would have thought that?

    He did not fit in with the circus,and redeems himself by going to the world champions!

    Man, Vikings fans are really bitter! I guess I would be too if my team continued to suck for years upon years. The part I don’t get are the chronic delusions of grandeur.

    SKOL…….or whatever

    It’s just the same old same old. If you can’t be good cuz the bar’s too high tear down the ones at the top to bring the bar down. It’s much easier than putting in the work to improve yourself.

    The Vikings are still ZERO in the Super Bowl Dep’t. Four tries and four fails. And no hope at redemption for a far as the eye can see…
