Morning links: New role for Rocky Seto

In my story today, Rocky Seto has coached with Pete Carroll for 13 years, and has a new job title this season with the Seattle Seahawks – defensive passing game coordinator.

The unique job description encompasses a lot of things for the former USC linebacker, making him a big-picture guy on the defensive side of the ball for new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

“If I can help out in improving their teaching principles, or teaching methods, or any of their concepts and make them more concise, that’s kind of how I see my role,” Seto said. “It took me a little bit of an adjustment because of all those years in college, I was very hands-on. So it’s been kind of nice at the same time, because it has allowed me to take kind of a step back and see things from a global standpoint, and really kind of see it through (Coach Carroll’s) eyes, and the defensive coordinator’s eyes.”
