The Seattle Seahawks have parted ways with yet another member of their coaching staff. Assistant defensive line coach Dwaine Board will not be returning for the 2018 season, according to a report Wednesday from Alex Marvez of the Sporting News.
From 2003-2008, Board spent six seasons as the Seahawks defensive line coach under Mike Holmgren. He was rehired in March 2015 as an assistant defensive line coach.
Earlier in the week, Seattle announced the mutual parting of ways with senior defensive assistant Travis Jones.
Jones coached the Seahawks defensive line from 2013-2016 before transitioning to his assistant role in 2017. Seattle hired Clint Hurtt as Jones’ replacement last season.
In addition to the staffing changes on the defensive line, the Seahawks are losing Heath Farwell – former linebacker and assistant special teams coach – according to NFL Network’s Omar Ruiz.
Farwell will join the Panthers in the same capacity.
Since the end of the season, Seattle has moved on from seven members of its coaching staff: offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, offensive line coach Tom Cable, defensive coordinator Kris Richard, linebackers coach Michael Barrow, assistant defensive line coach Dwaine Board, senior defensive assistant Travis Jones and assistant special teams coach Heath Farwell.
