Ex-Vikings Coach, Bills DC Leslie Frazier to Join Seahawks’ Staff, per Report

The Seattle Seahawks look to be planning to hire a former NFL head coach in order to increase their staff's experience level.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Seahawks have hired Leslie Frazier,

the former Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator, as assistant head coach.

Frazier, 64, took a year break from coaching in 2023 after directing the Bills' defense for six seasons.

During his tenure, Buffalo finished in the top five in scoring and total defense three times.

Seattle named Mike Macdonald as its new head coach on Wednesday, after parting ways with former coach Pete Carroll on January 10.

In addition to serving as the defensive coordinator for four different teams, Frazier was the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings from 2010 to 2013

He finished his career 21-32-1, taking the Vikings to the playoffs in 2012 but falling to the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round.

Except for one year off, the former Chicago Bears defensive back has been involved in NFL coaching in some capacity every season since 1999.
