The Seattle Seahawks’ record of potential offensive coordinators continues to develop. In a report that surfaced on Friday, Seattle has now requested an interview with New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi.
The Athletic’s Jeff Duncan tweeted the news on Friday.
“The Chargers and Seahawks have sought permission to interview Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi for his or her vacant offensive coordinator positions, based on sources,” wrote Duncan. “Lombardi was new Chargers head coach Brandon Staley’s OC at Mercyhurst when Staley performed QB there in 2005.”
Lombardi is a Seattle native and attended Seattle Prep for highschool. He’s the son of Vince Lombardi Jr., who served as an assistant to the Seahawks’ normal supervisor within the early days of the franchise, and the grandson of Vince Lombardi, the namesake of the Tremendous Bowl trophy.
The Seahawks have reported curiosity in a lot of candidates who may exchange former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Schottenheimer was let go nearly two weeks in the past after three seasons in Seattle.
