The Seahawks have their new offensive coordinator. Rams past game coordinator Shane Waldron has been hired by Seattle to replace Brian Schottenheimer, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Waldron has been in the Rams organization since 201
Waldron presumably brings with him some of McVay’s philosophies and creativity. McVay leans on a strong running game and it therefore makes sense that Waldron will mark the necessary fields for Pete Carroll. The goal is likely for Waldron to bring some varying looks to Seattle’s running game in addition to a successful short and intermediate passing game. Much of Sean McVay’s offense is about horizontal movement, window dressing and getting players open in space.
These are all features that are welcome additions in Seattle. The big question (and a question we do not know the answer to until next September) is how Carroll’s ideologies will fit into Waldron’s, and how much freedom Waldron will have to implement his own scheme.
It must also be assumed that Russell Wilson met with Waldron and gave his approval mark for the lease before Seattle completed the addition.
Hopefully we hear from Waldron in the near future, but we now know that the search is over and the Seahawks have their new OC.
