Former Seahawks pro personnel director Tag Ribary dies at 48
Tag Ribary, a long-time member of the Seattle Seahawks front office, died Friday at the age of 48.
The former Seahawks executive had parted ways with the franchise in May after working for the team since 2009. Ribary (pictured right) worked for Seattle as an assistant director of pro personnel from 1990-2000 before joining the Washington Redskins as director of pro personnel in 2001. After one year, Ribary became a pro scout for the Carolina Panthers until returning to Seattle.
Ribary served as a scout for the Seahawks in 2009 before being promoted to director of pro personnel under new head coach Pete Carroll in 2010. He was promoted to director of team operations in 2013, where he spent his last two years working for the franchise.
Ribary is survived by his wife Eva, two children Regan and Bennett, his father John Ribary [wife Sharon], his mother Marsha Brody [husband Steve], and his brother Chuck Ribary. Step siblings include Shon Steger and Heather Meyer.
