Doug Pederson has reportedly spoken with Seahawks about OC opening


After the Seattle Seahawks abruptly changed course and parted ways with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer last Tuesday, they aren't sitting on their hands in their pursuit to fill the opening. 

The Seahawks parted ways with Brian Schottenheimer after three seasons, citing "philosophical differences." Seattle failed to eclipse 300 total yards in their final three games and posted a mere 278 total yards in their 30-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

As news circulated about former Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn speaking with the Seahawks, another former head coach has emerged: Doug Pederson. 

Pederson found himself at the center of controversy in Philadelphia, leading to his dismissal three years after bringing the Lombardi Trophy to the city. In the past, Pederson has commanded offenses led by Michael Vick, Alex Smith, Carson Wentz, Nick Foles and more recently Jalen Hurts (Eagles) and... well, Nate Sudfeld.

NBC Sports Northwest Seahawks Insider Joe Fann shared his thoughts on the former Super Bowl winning head coach:

I think it would be a strong hire given Pederson’s early success in Philadelphia. He’s shown to be a creative mind who could help Russell Wilson continue his development. Pederson has a well established system, which would make it intriguing whether or not Pete Carroll gives him full autonomy to implement that scheme
