SEATTLE (AP) — Shane Waldron hit all the right notes as he discussed his first opportunity to be an offensive coordinator in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks.
Now comes the wait to find out whether Waldron's offensive beliefs will mesh with what works best for Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson and the Seahawks on the field.
Waldron says he wants balance, he wants to protect the football and he believes in teaching fundamentals.
"We're not going to let a day go by we're not working on one of the fundamental core beliefs of our offense, whether it's blocking whether it's catching the ball," Waldron said. "It's the exact detail in which we're going to take in a handoff or the exact detail in which we're going to run around. We're going to be a balanced offense."
He says that doesn't mean he wants to run a conservative offense.
He's really excited to work with Wilson. "He's a guy that just like coach Carroll just that upmost respect from afar from the opposite sideline," Waldron said. "You're just saying, man, at any point this guy can explode and create a game winning play. He's going to attack every day, preparing himself to be the best, and that's really the exciting part about it."
