Report: Carroll hires Alex Gibbs

From Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com:

New Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has hired Alex Gibbs to join the team as an assistant head coach, according to sources.

Gibbs would oversee Seattle's offensive line zone run-block system that will be compatible with the scheme that will be coordinated by Jeremy Bates, the sources said.

Gibbs has been serving that current position with the Houston Texans, but sources say he embraced an opportunity from the Seahawks and accepted their offer to join the staff. Gibbs is among the most reputable line coaches in NFL history.
