Seahawks promoted Kris Richard to defensive coordinator

The Seattle Seahawks promoted defensive backs coach Kris Richard to defensive coordinator.

The Seahawks lost defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to the Atlanta Falcons when he was named head coach.

Linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr, who left to become the Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator, was replaced by Michael Barrow. Barrow had been coaching the University of Miami linebackers for the past eight seasons. Former NFL linebacker Lofa Tatupu will assist him.

Tatupu played six seasons for the Seahawks.
