The Seahawks parted ways with a pair of defensive coaches on Tuesday, releasing defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. and defensive pass game coordinator Andre Curtis from their duties.
Norton spent the last four seasons as Seattle's defensive coordinator, and has previously held the same title with the Raiders for three seasons. Prior to joining the Raiders, Norton was on Pete Carroll's staff as the Seahawks' linebackers coach for five seasons from 2010-2014, helping to monitor the development of players like Bobby Wagner and KJ Wright.
As a Pro-Bowl and All-Pro linebacker during his career with the Cowboys and 49ers, Norton began his coaching career under Carroll at USC in 2004.
Curtis has spent the last seven seasons with the Seahawks, starting as an assistant assistant coach before becoming a defensive back coach in 2017 and earning the title of coordinator of defensive passing games in 2018.
