Ryan Grubb, the former offensive coordinator at Washington University, has reversed his decision and will now lead the Seattle Seahawks as their new offensive coordinator. Despite being offered the position at Alabama, Grubb found himself drawn back to Washington state and ultimately decided to take the role with the Seahawks.
Grubb is a veteran coach with experience in both college and professional football. He served as an assistant head coach, offensive coordinator, and quarterbacks coach at the University of Washington for two seasons before moving on to Fresno State for five years. He also had stints with Eastern Michigan, Sioux Falls, and South Dakota. This will be Grubb’s first professional stint in the NFL, making his role with the Seahawks even more exciting.
Grubb’s relationship with Michael Penix Jr., who is set to be a top prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft, may have played a significant role in his decision to join the Seahawks. With Geno Smith potentially facing salary cap issues in Seattle, there may be a need for another quarterback in the near future. Grubb’s connection to Penix Jr. could make him an attractive candidate for that position.
