The Seahawks are bringing back former cornerback Deshawn Shead and longtime assistant coach Carl Smith, as well as his son, Tracey.

Smith was Seahawks quarterbacks coach from 2011 to 2017 and an associate head coach in 2018 before being with the Houston Texans for the last two seasons.

Shead played with the Seahawks from 2012 to 2017 and was with the team in 2019 during training camp.

He fills the vacancy created by Tom Donatell after he left for the Chargers.

The Seahawks have had a shift in the coaching staff that is not normal for the organization over the last few years.

But, this has not been a normal offseason for the Seahawks.

With the offseason still in full swing, more changes to the team are sure to come as the weeks continue before the start of the new NFL league year.
