Morning links: Seto interviews for UCLA D-coordinator job

It appears the Seattle Seahawks could be losing their sixth coach from Pete Carroll’s coaching staff.

Rocky Seto, who served as Seattle’s defensive quality control coach and was elevated to assistant secondary coach after Jerry Gray Left for Texas, has interviewed for UCLA’s vacant defensive coordinator position, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Seto served as Carroll’s defensive coordinator at USC in 2009 before following him to Seattle.

The move would further shake-up Carroll’s coaching staff. The Seattle head coach already has said he’s not concerned about transitioning to a new staff. However, I would think continuity in coaching could be an issue next season, particularly with the possibility of a lockout and the new coaching staff not having a lot of time to acclimate to the players.

The Seahawks have not confirmed that Seto interviewed for the UCLA job.

According to John Glennon of the Tennessean, former Seahawks head coach Jim Mora has expressed interest in the vacant Tennessee head coaching Job.
