The Seattle Seahawks have hired the former head coach of the Washington Redskins, Jim Mora.
Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said Tuesday he had interviewed Mora for the job.
The Seahawks are now in the process of interviewing several candidates for the position.
A number of NFL teams have hired former head coaches.
Mora has a contract with the Redskins and was an assistant under John Harbaugh at Michigan State.
The team has not made a decision on whether it will interview Mora, who previously was a defensive coordinator with the Washington Eagles.
The hiring of Mora is expected to bolster Seattle’s coaching search.
Former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Jim Tomsula was hired as an assistant coach.
Former Houston Texans defensive coordinator Vance Joseph was hired by the Cleveland Browns as an offensive assistant.
The 49ers and Browns both have quarterbacks who have been drafted ahead of Moras.
