Frazier atop Seattle's list to replace Mora
By Kevin Seifert
There is an NFC North angle to the firing of Seattle coach Jim Mora. The Seahawks are already seeking permission to interview Minnesota defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier for the job, according to ESPN’s John Clayton.
The Vikings resume practice Sunday for their Jan. 17 divisional playoff game, so the Seahawks have a tight window to conduct the interview. Their next window likely wouldn’t be for at least 10 days.
Frazier interviewed Thursday for Buffalo’s open job. If he speaks with the Seahawks, it will be the seventh job Frazier has interviewed for in the past three years.
I’m guessing Frazier is going to have a lot of questions about this situation. Most notably, the Seahawks haven’t replaced departed football chief Tim Ruskell. Interim general manager Ruston Webster is currently the Seahawks’ highest-ranking football executive, but there is a lot of uncertainty in Seattle.
