The Seattle Seahawks have replaced an experienced offensive coordinator with an inexperienced coordinator. The team is finalizing an agreement with Shane Waldron, who will serve as their offensive coordinator, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Waldron replaces Brian Schottenheimer, who spent three seasons as offensive coordinator. At the end of the season, the Seahawks elected to part ways with the veteran coach.
The 41-year-old comes to the Seahawks after working with their rival, the Los Angeles Rams. Waldron had been employed by the Rams since the 2017 season.
This is the latest departure from the Rams coaching staff. Brandon Staley was hired as the Los Angeles Chargers head coach.
Staley hired Joe Barry to be the team’s defensive passing game coordinator/linebackers coach. Aubrey Pleasant was also hired by the Detroit Lions as their defensive backs/passing game coordinator.
While he is inexperienced in this role, Waldron does have one year of offensive coordinator experience on his resume. However, that was a decade ago.
And it was at the high school level. He served as the Buckingham Browne & Nichols School (Cambridge, Mass.) offensive coordinator during the 2011 season
During the 2020 season, Waldron was the team’s passing game coordinator. In 2019, he held the role of passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
In 2017, he was hired as the Rams tight ends coach. Then, in 2018, he was promoted to passing game coordinator.
Before working for the Rams, Waldron also coached in the NFL with the Washington Redskins (now the Washington Football Team) in 2016. He was their offensive quality control coach.
Waldron has been coaching since 2005. Before getting into coaching, he worked three seasons in the front office with the New England Patriots.
He has two Super Bowl rings on his resume. Both came with the Patriots.
