With Kris Richard likely to leave the Seattle Seahawks, Norton is expected to return to Seahawks as a defensive coordinator.
Norton served as linebacker coach for Seahawks from 2010 to 2014, before joining the Oakland Raiders in 2015 as a defensive coordinator.
The San Francisco 49ers fans may say, “Wait a minute, but he’s just joining us!” Indeed – Norton joined 49ers on January 8 as an assistant coach. But there’s a clause in his contract that he can get out of the contract if he can become a Seahawks defensive coordinator.
Norton and Carroll had worked together before entering the NFL. He was a linebacker coach at the University of Southern California from 2004 to 2009, before joining Seahawks in 2010 with Carroll. As Seahawks defensive group achieved great success, he caught the fancy of Oakland Raiders. However, Norton was fired by the Raiders after the defense team did not perform well for the second consecutive season.

Now Norton will be back to the familiar place and familiar people work together. Seahawks are the perfect places for Norton to face players who have proven themselves in their familiar defense systems.
At the same time, Seahawks approached to find a new offensive coordinator.
Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback coach Brian Schottenheimer is expected to accept the invitation from the Seahawks to become their offensive coordinator.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made an invitation to Schottenheimer and two sides are negotiating the contract and will soon sign it. Schottenheimer is the first choice for Seahawks.
Less than a week ago, Seahawks fired Darrell Bevell, a seven-year offensive coordinator on the team. The 44-year-old Schottenheimer served as offensive coordinator for the New York Jets between 2006 and 2011, during which time the jets entered the A-League Championship for two consecutive seasons. From 2012 to 2014 he served as offensive coordinator for Los Angeles Rams.
Russell Wilson Jersey
After two years in the Colts, Schottenheimer will be responsible for more diversification of Seahawks currently rely too much on quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson became the first player in the history of the league to finish all passing blocks and at least 30% of rushing yards this season.
To do that, Schottenheimer needs to make the poor performance of rush ball attack rekindled. Seahawks averaged 101.8 yards a game this season, ranked No. 23 in the league, with the exception of Wilson, no one rushed the ball more than 250 yards. Such a bad performance of the factors of injury, but more importantly, the team cannot contribute to run outstanding performance.
Although the Colts attack team’s performance is much better than the Seahawks, whether Schottenheimer better than Bevell to build the Seahawks attack team remains to be seen.
