Seattle Seahawks linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. greets Lofa Tatupu (51) after a play against the Carolina Panthers in the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 5, 2010 in Seattle.

Just last week, the San Francisco 49ers announced Ken Norton Jr.as their assistant head coach for defense and inside linebackers coach. "Because of how we feel about Ken as a coach, we understand and respect his desire to pursue the position", Shanahan said.

Norton, after joining the Niners coaching staff as a linebackers coach on January 8, will be moving on to take over the Seattle Seahawks' opening at defensive coordinator. He is the first player in history to win three-straight Vince Lombardi trophies, and he won another as the linebackers coach in Seattle in 2014.

But United were back on top immediately after the restart with Butland needing to race from his line to beat Martial to another expert Pogba pass.

The Seahawks officially announced the anticipated hires Tuesday after reports surfaced over the holiday weekend of agreements with the pair. Norton replaces Kris Richard, who was Seattle's defensive coordinator for the past three seasons and was selected ahead of Norton for the job in 2015.

Norton is the son of former heavyweight boxer Ken Norton and spent 13 years as a linebacker in the National Football League with the Cowboys and the 49ers, winning three Super Bowl rings in 1992-93-94.

His final three seasons in NY were the most optimistic sign that Schottenheimer can help the Seahawks return to the run-first style that head coach Pete Carroll desires. Garafolo also is reporting there is an out that would allow him to depart and re-route to Seattle instead.

Richard's units slipped the past two seasons, but that was partly due to critical injuries. He was subsequently hired by the 49ers last week as an assistant head coach before taking the job with Seattle. He became the linebackers coach at USC in 2004 under then-coach Pete Carroll, whom he would re-unite with once again should Seattle go through with naming him their new defensive coordinator.

Mike Sullivan, the Giants' former offensive coordinator, is now the quarterbacks coach for the Denver Broncos.

Solari was Seattle's offensive line coach in 2008 under Mike Holmgren, and in 2009 under Jim Mora. Holland's role now that Norton has bolted is not known yet.
