The Denver Broncos have asked the Seattle Seahawks for permission to interview associate head coach/defensive assistant Sean Desai for their defensive coordinator position, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Desai, 39, joined the Seahawks last year after serving as the Chicago Bears’ defensive coordinator in 2021. He worked his way up from defensive quality control coach (2013-2018) to safeties coach (2019-2020) to DC (2021) in Chicago.
Before joining the Bears, Deasi coached at Boston College, Miami and Temple. He’s been coaching at the college or pro level since 2006.
The Broncos also requested an interview with Pittsburgh Steelers senior defensive assistant/linebackers coach Brian Flores for their DC job. New head coach Sean Payton met with holdover DC Ejiro Evero on Thursday. The fact that Denver started setting up DC interviews right after that meeting does not seem to be a good sign for the chances of Evero remaining with the team.
