Seahawks assistant head coach Sean Desai is drawing interest from teams looking for a new defensive coordinator.

Desai was on the list of candidates in Cleveland before the Browns hired Jim Schwartz and a couple of other teams would like to speak with him about their vacancies. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins and Vikings have both requested interviews with Desai.

Desai joined the Seahawks in 2022 after spending the 2021 season as the defensive coordinator for the Bears. He was the safeties coach for two seasons and a defensive quality control coach for six seasons before moving up to that job in Chicago.

The Vikings have also requested interviews with Steelers linebackers coach Brian Flores and Saints co-defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen. No other candidates have been identified for the Dolphins, but it’s safe to say that Flores won’t wind up on the list in Miami.

  1. Miami D has always revolved around having 2 CBs that can play press man to man coverage to an above average ability with safeties that are fast. When Byron Jones decided to quit on the team and when Needham and Brandon Jones went on IR it totally ruined the scheme that Miami has been successful at. Miami did not adjust to that and still tried playing over zero with weak CBs. That was the downfall of the defense. A real fan that knows the game of football would know this. It isn’t because of Flores, it is because Boyer did not adjust to the players and what they can and cannot do. I personally would like to see Byron Jones and Howard back next year AND make sure Needham and Brandon Jones are back as well.

  2. LOL, like rats off of a sinking ship.

    What did you expect when first ballot HOF QB stopped giving you his blessing?

    The team fell apart and Denver soared. Next season expect Hawks to again pick top 5 while Denver will pick last.
