Fired New York Jets head coach Adam Gase and Kansas City Chiefs quarterbacks coach Mike Kafka are candidates for the vacant offensive coordinator job with the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN.
Gase has already spoken with the team about the opening, ESPN reported. Kafka could be interviewed next week even if the Chiefs advance to the Super Bowl with two weeks between the conference championship games and Super Bowl.
Kafka is reportedly also a candidate to be head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Seahawks fired offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer after a 30-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the first round of the playoffs.
The club-record 459 points can be misleading. The team averaged 34.3 points in the first eight games, then managed just 23.1 points a game in the final eight. Seattle was held to 20 or fewer points in four of the last six games, including the playoff loss.
Schottenheimer spent three seasons as Seattle’s offensive coordinator, following the much-maligned Darrell Bevell, who was fired following the 2017 season.
