Seahawks coordinator Clint Hurtt wants a more...


Seahawks assistant Clint Hurtt is one step closer to becoming a head coach now that Seattle has promoted him to defensive coordinator. Hurtt spoke to the media on Wednesday for the first time since earning his position.

He wasted no time in outlining the plan for the Seahawks’ defense going forward.

“One thing that is going to be significantly different this year, we are going to be aggressive,” Hurtt said. “We want that. The aggressiveness is going to have to come from our guys up front getting after the passer, continuing on being strong in the run game like we have been in last few years. That’s the mentality of a defense that we want to have, and our players respond to that mentality.”

Seattle struggled on both sides of the ball last season, leading to the team parting ways with multiple members of the coaching staff. But as for the defense, Hurtt now has a chance to do things his way.

“Obviously, that comes down to one, how you coach it, and two, how you call it,” Hurtt explained of his vision. “So the aggressiveness and attacking offenses, but at the same time challenging the quarterback and making it hard on him not just with a rush but also with coverage.

“That’s where we’re going to be and that’s what we want to make big improvements.”
