- This is a regular off season article on the Seahawks coaching staff getting familiar with the players and each other. Lots of fluff with one very funny statement:
Solari's assistant line coach, Mike DeBord, is also a former offensive coordinator. He spent the past three seasons in that capacity at the University of Michigan, but joined the Seahawks because he wants to work in the NFL.Because he wanted to work in the NFL? Are you freaking kidding me, it's because he didn't get retained by the new coaching staff, or a better way of putting it - got fired. He is working in the NFL because I'm sure someone owed Lloyd Carr a favor and he needed a job. He took the best Tackle Michigan has ever had, a 2nd round NFL QB, a drafted running back, and two drafted WR's and turned them into the "most predicable show on earth". That is why he is in the NFL!
- Some of you might remember radio personality for Detroit's WJR Chuck Swirsky. Chuck did play-by-play for both Michigan basketball and football in the mid 90's. I'm sure you all have been staying up late wondering where he went and what he is doing now. Well, Chuck got deported (not really) to Canada to be the Raptors play by play guy. He has now taken a new job to be the play by play guy for the Chicago Bulls. If you remember, Chuck had a famous take that was caught on tape "on how much he loved Chicago and wished the Big Ten Championship game would be hosted there every year". Detroit and Chicago was a pretty heated NBA rivalry back in those days and Chuck quickly got sent to Toronto. Chuck your back where you belong.
