The Seattle Seahawks hired a pair of Rams coaches to help lead their offense.

The team hired Shane Waldron to be offensive coordinator and Andy Dickerson as run-game coordinator. 

Waldron replaces Brian Schottenheimer. Schottenheimer ran the offense in Seattle for the past three seasons. This past season, the Seahawks scored a franchise-record 459 points.

Waldron, 41, has never been an offensive coordinator in the NFL. He's been with the Rams since 2017. Waldron coached tight ends in his first year with Los Angeles. He then moved into his most recent position.

In the three seasons as the pass-game coordinator, the Rams were fifth in yards in 2018, fourth in 2019, and 13th this past season.

Waldron has spent seven seasons as an assistant coach in the NFL with three different teams.  He's also coached on the college and high school levels.

Andy Dickerson has been an assistant offensive line coach for the Rams since 2012.
