Jim Mora Jr. Joins The Seahawks

Former Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Jim Mora Jr. agrees to terms with the Seahawks that brings the passionate, energetic coach back to the Northwest.

Former Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Jim Mora will be joining the Seahawks as assistant head coach and coach to the DBs. Mora recently reached agreement with the Seahawks and head coach Mike Holmgren could not be happier.

"I'm excited to have the opportunity to add someone to the staff with the energy and passion that Jim brings to the game," Holmgren said.

"He is a strong teacher and talented coach who will make us better."

Mora - who is from the Northwest and played for the Washington Huskies - gets to come home, work for a strong franchise and head coach he has long admired.

"I'm thrilled to join not only what I believe is a quality organization, but for the chance to work with one of the finest head coaches in the league," Mora said. "That, coupled with the opportunity for my family to be in the great northwest is extremely exciting."

It remains to be seen the exact impact adding Mora will have on the team in general and the defensive backs specifically but his energy and passion and ability to fire up his players are traits that will no doubt be extremely useful as the Seahawks continue on their quest to make it back - and win - the Super Bowl.
